California mom killed by suspected DUI driver after visiting premature twins

California mom killed by suspected DUI driver after visiting premature twins

Katie Evans, who had four older children in addition to the twin girls, was struck head-on by a vehicle that had lost control after it sideswiped another auto, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station Sgt. Dan Dantice told the paper. "It was pretty mangled".

Katie and Jacob Evans' premature twin girls weren't expected to survive when they were born at around 2 pounds each less than eight weeks ago.

Eventually Katie's husband, Jacob, called Caralee to say he was anxious Katie still hadn't returned from the hospital, according to People magazine.

"One person was taken to the hospital", she said. The crash happened shortly before midnight in the area of Golden Valley and Soledad Canyon roads, according to officials from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

Investigators probing a head-on traffic collision Friday which claimed the life of a 37-year-old Saugus mother of six are waiting for the results of toxicology tests to determine if alcohol was a factor in the fatal crash.

Evans died at the scene, police said.

A spokesperson from the Santa Clarita Sheriff's said the driver that hit Evans was 21 years of age and they believe alcohol played a role in the accident.

Jacob's brother, Michael, says Jacob and the couple's four sons - the eldest of which has special needs - are coping the best way they can.

"Jacob called us during the night and said, 'I'm really anxious my wife never made it home from the hospital last night, ' " Caralee told PEOPLE.

Evans was devoted to her family and passionately concerned about issues that affected her family. The infants, who were born about 2 lbs. each, were thriving and the family was excited to welcome the "miracle" babies, little Sarah and Hannah.

'The outpouring of support from the community, from the internet, from our local church, from neighbors...it has been absolutely overwhelming'.

Caralee says Evans visited her little ones almost every day, and a photo showed the proud mom smiling wide as she held the tiny girls.

The YouCaring page, established to help Jacob Evans care for the children, surpassed its initial goal of $100,000 in just a few days.

Katie Evans was returning from a visit with her twin daughters, Hannah and Sarah, who were not even 8 weeks old yet, the page stated.
