North Highlands residents, Brittney Montano and Tony Montano, both 29 and their two children, 5-year-old Antonio Montano 9-year-old and Marianna Montano have been identified as four family members that lost their lives in a wrong way accident that happened around 4:45 a.m. on Interstate 80 near Eagle Lakes Road on Saturday, November 20, 2021 in Soda Springs, California.

According to report, Brittney and her family were travelling in truck when a suspect drunk driver driving a Jeep on the wrong-way on the freeway collided head-on with their truck killing the couple and their two children on the spot.

According to a Facebook post made by Anthony J Gonzalez, the family were headed to Utah and the grand canyon for vacation and little Julian was the only survivor of the crash.

“R.I.P Brittney Montano, Tony Montano, Marianna Montano and Antonio Montano. On Saturday morning a tragedy hit our family and changed our lives forever. We lost four very special family members, when they were struck by a drunk driver driving on the wrong side of the freeway in a head on collision. They were headed to Utah and the grand canyon for vacation. By the grace of God little Julian was the sole survivor.

“Rest In Peace to my friend Brittney Montano, her husband and two of their children that were tragically taken from this world. And may God fill their surviving son, Julian with love, protection and healing.

Brittney, you will always be remembered as a wholesome woman that was real and full of life and love! And your son Julian will live with the love and grace of knowing how much he was loved by you and your husband and his siblings!
God bless you my friend! A real angel! I love you”

A GoFundMe account has been launched by Anthony Gonzalez to support with their funeral expenses and support little Julian.

We condole Brittney and Tony family for this great loss. We ask God to console and comfort them in this moment of grieve.
