In what can only be described as a heartwrenching experience, a woman had to watch her daughter and three grandchildren lose their lives in a crash caused by a drunk driver that occurred in Spring, Texas.

The grieved woman, Rhonda Branch, and her daughter Porsha Branch were making a trip to pack the last load from Rhonda's former apartment to her new home. It was supposed to be an exciting weekend for them as a family.

After packing the last box, the family began their journey to the new home, with Rhonda driving a truck with two of her grandkids beside her. Porsha was driving the other truck, which was ahead, with her three youngest sons.

The suspected drunk driver, Daniel Canada, reportedly walked away from the scene of the crash with bruises.

After a brief stop at McDonald's to get food, the family continued their journey, with Rhonda steady behind her family. However, things took a turn for the worst when they pulled up to Gosling street. Speaking about it, a grief-stricken Rhonda said:

"When we were coming up on Gosling Street, I was like something happened. I said, 'Wow, something is on fire'... and I never knew that it was my baby."

Porsha's truck had been slammed into by a drunk driver, and the vehicle went up in flames right before Rhonda's eyes. The heartbroken mother and grandmother didn't want to believe it at first.

However, when she approached the flaming truck and saw the shoe she put on one of her grandsons near the tire, she knew her worst nightmare had come true. Porsha and her 7-month-old son Drake died on the spot.

Her other two grandsons, 5-year-old King and 2-year-old Messiah, were airlifted to the hospital. King passed away shortly, and Messiah was put on life support, but unfortunately, he died on Monday.

The suspected drunk driver, Daniel Canada, reportedly walked away from the scene of the crash with bruises. Before the accident, he was stopped by authorities for speeding, and marijuana was found in his car upon searching.

His blood-alcohol level was said to be .15%. However, according to Texas law, a person is considered intoxicated when it measures at 0.08%. Canada has been charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter.

In another tragic incident, a five-year-old girl lost her life during a walk with her mother after being fatally hit by a car.

A 61-year-old driver hit the mother-duo who was walking on the road. The mother is currently in stable condition at Westmead Hospital.
