The loss is felt all over. My sister drove past on her way home, and is rattled by the senseless sight.

It's looking like daddy driver may have fallen asleep on the drive back from shopping the outlet stores in Gilroy. I'm guessing they were at it all night, probably grabbed some breakfast in the Gilroy area. Dad probably thought he could make it home while everyone else in the car was sleeping ... Also noteworthy: the two sisters that died after being thrown out of the rolling SUV were reportedly the only ones not wearing seatbelts.
