After a family visit to see their mother, two twin sisters and their children were involved in a fatal road incident while trying assist a driver looking for help.
25-year-olds Marcasia and Markwonda Crenshaw of Boynton Beach front, Florida, were returning residence after visiting their mother found in Jacksonville on Sunday. While traveling down I-95, the sisters noticed a vehicle “stopped in the inside lane, air luggage out, emergency lights on and smoking,” Markwonda told the Sun-Sentinel.
“We pulled over to make certain everyone was OK. Who wouldn’t?”
However, their altruistic turned into a deadly car accident which robbed Marcasia of her life.
The sisters noticed a Dodge Sprinter which was disabled with 23-year-old Yuri Kosolapenko when driving. Regarding to a Florida Highway Patrol crash article, Kosolapenko was involved in a crash earlier in the day.
After spotting the car, the twins parked in front of it and got out of the car, leaving Marcasia’s 5-year-old son and Markwonda’s 2-year-old daughter sleeping in the vehicle. As both approached the Dodge, an oncoming car veered onto the scene.
23-year-outdated Dalton Vancor, who drove a Chevrolet pickup truck, “attemptedto aggressively brake and swerve still left to avoid” the Dodge, the crash report stated.
“I got taken care of quickly,” Markwonda told the Sun-Sentinel. “[Marcasia] ran left, I ran the other way.
“When I turned around, she was found in the grass. I was touching her, seeking to wake her up. But she wouldn’t approach,” she added.
Regarding to troopers, Marcasia attempted to run toward the median but was reach by the right side of Vancor’s vehicle.
Kosolapenko and Vancor were not injured found in the crash, which is still being investigated.
“This is a selfless act,” FHP Sgt. Kim Montes told the Sun-Sentinel. “They chose to stop to help somebody. They probably didn’t realize just how much they put their lives at risk.
Markwonda, who also said she and her sister were rarely apart, is still in shock.
“I can’t eat, can’t sleeping, crying, I’m just found in disbelief,” Markwonda told the Sun-Sentinel. “Honestly, I am seeking to be solid, because I’ve the kids.”
