    *A Lake Elsinore, California couple was killed in a wrong-way crash on Sunday on the 71 Freeway in Chino Hills. Now family members are stepping up to help care for their three children.

    According to ABC News, four people were killed in the car crash that involved multiple vehicles. Ruth and Gedion Mbatha were among those killed.

    “They were the sweetest. I know people usually say this about people when they’re gone, but they were just really, really sweet,” said Karla Gibson, the couple’s neighbor.

    She added: “They were always friendly, always smiling. I don’t think I ever saw them in anything but a good mood.”

    Gibson organized a GoFundMe to raise funds for the children’s care. Gedion’s sister will reportedly become their primary caregiver.

    “Gedion was here from Russia. He went to school in Russia, and he worked as an aeronautical engineer,” said Horelia Kuria, Gedion’s sister who has two children of her own.”He was a dedicated dad, he was committed to his family and he was a caring brother and caring friend to everyone that knew him.”

    “Same goes for Ruth. Ruth went to nursing school here, she was a registered nurse,” Kuria said. “She was committed to her children.”

    Kuria says both Ruth and Gedion were killed while out celebrating his birthday. 

    “I’m just reaching out to everyone. Let’s help these kids. Let’s keep the lights on for them. Let’s help them go to college,” Kuria said. “Let’s pick up where the parents left because we can do it for them.”
