Idaho State Police have not confirmed who was driving the Honda Civic or what Juan Pablo Farias’ connection to the sisters was.
On a GoFundMe page a memorial fund for Rojas Family has been set up by Analy Urena-Diaz, on behalf of Jessica Rojas Carrasco.
A heartfelt post on the page reads: “It is with a heavy heart that I deliver such tragic news: Saturday May 29th around 2pm in Idaho the three youngest Rojas sisters were killed in a car accident on their way to their family vacation.
We are all at a loss of words and trying to push through. We are currently unaware of what the complete cost will be to bring the sisters home and to prepare for the proper burial they deserve.
“There are no words to adequately describe the incredible lives of Melissa, Jasmin, and Priscilla. We love and miss you dearly.”
