The three youngest Rojas-Carrasco sisters, Melissa, 26, Jasmin, 22, and Priscilla, 16, were killed last weekend in a head-on collision while driving along a highway roughly 30 miles west of Boise, Idaho. The fourth passenger of the vehicle, Jasmin’s boyfriend Juan Pablo Farias, 22, from Vacaville in Northern California, was also killed instantly upon impact. 

According to 10News, the three sisters and Farias were on vacation, driving from Oceanside, California to meet another family in Idaho after winning a stay at a cabin from a raffle. 

The Idaho State Police have stated that the crash occurred around 2:20 p.m. on Saturday while traveling northbound in a Honda Civic on a stretch of the U.S. Highway 95 near Marsing, a small town about 30 miles outside of Boise. The Rojas-Carrasco sisters and Farias collided with a GMC Sierra pickup truck that was headed southbound. The cause of the crash is still under investigation. 

The three occupants of the other vehicle, a 21-year-old male and 16-year-old from Nampa, and a 20-year-old female from Kuna were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries and continue to recover from their injuries. 

The youngest of the three sisters, Priscilla, was a sophomore at Oceanside High School, where she took honors classes. In a letter to students of the school, assistant principal Kenneth Wright wrote, “There are no words to describe this tragic loss.” He has also stated that the district’s Crisis Response Team will be on campus throughout the week to support students and staff as they mourn the sudden death of their classmate. 

Two GoFundMe pages have been set up to cover the funeral expenses. As of Thursday morning, a total of $55,430 has been raised in support of the Rojas-Carrasco family.
