Vigil to be held for mom, son killed in Manorville crash

MANORVILLE - A community will come together tonight to deal with the death of a Manorville mother and son. For four days now, the community has been grieving over the tragic loss of Keri-Ann Trinca and her 7-year-old son Jason, who were killed in a car accident on Saturday. The community will remember the mother and son and also pray for the lives of the two other children who were seriously injured. Jason and Keri-Ann were killed when their car collided with a van at a Manorville intersection where Country Road 111 meets Montauk Avenue. Trinca?s two other children, Marialena, 4, and Christopher, 2, are hospitalized in critical condition, but are improving. No charges have been filed as police are still investigating the cause of the crash. Investigators are trying to figure out whether one of the drivers may have run the light. Tonight?s vigil will be at the Eastport-South Manor Junior Senior High School on the football field at 7:15 p.m. The school is located in Manorville on Moriches-Middle Island Road. Grief counselors will be on hand today at Eastport Elementary School where Jason was in the second grade. The school says both counselors and psychologists will be made available for as long as needed for all students and staff.
