WINDSOR HILLS, California (KABC) — A pregnant woman who died with her son and boyfriend in a windsor Hills accident caused by a speeding car was on her way to a prenatal doctor’s appointment, her sister said Friday.

Seana Kerr and her family are in utter shock as they come to terms with the tragic death of her older sister Asherey Ryan, her 11-month-old nephew, her sister’s boyfriend and their unborn child.

“We are still going through the stages of grieving and we are only in phase one,” Kerr said. “We’re in denial because things like that happen in movies. That happens one in a million.”

Kerr said her loved ones were killed when a driver of a Mercedes-Benz coupe drove through the intersection of La Brea and Slauson on Thursday.

She said her sister, who she named “Rey Rey,” had just left their home and was on her way to her third trimester checkup when the accident happened.

“She literally walked out the door because we all live together, and she said, ‘Okay, I love you. I’m going to my doctor’s appointment to check on the baby,'” Kerr said.

Kerr said she offered to babysit Alonzo, but Ryan wanted to take her son for a ride.

“When I look at my son, I see my cousin,” Kerr said. “My cousin was my son’s first best friend. My cousin was like my son’s brother. They only know each other.”

In addition, Kerr said 24-year-old Reynold Lester, the father of Ryan’s unborn baby, was in the car.

She said he’s one of the victims.

Ryan’s family said Lester was 24 years old and worked as a security guard. Ryan was a stay at home mom and college student, according to her family.

While Ryan’s family is devastated, they rely on their faith for comfort and peace.

They are now looking to the driver of that Mercedes for answers about what led to the crash.

“On behalf of my family, we forgive you. We are experiencing this terrible loss, but we believe in God and we believe that God does everything for a reason,” Kerr said.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m. Thursday, a Mercedes-Benz sedan ran a red light at high speed, causing the crash of as many as six cars near a gas station in Windsor Hills, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Video showed the Mercedes hurtling through an intersection and hitting at least two cars which exploded in flames and sped onto a sidewalk and hit the sign on the corner of the gas station. A fiery streak led to one car. A vehicle was torn in two.

Charges of gross negligence will be recommended when the case is brought before the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, the Highway Patrol said.

Ryan’s family has created a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses if they plan to bury their loved ones.
