Police have said the accident occurred when another vehicle drifted into the family's car, causing them to veer off the road and hit a tree.

The Orlando Sentinel quotes a family friend as saying, "The girls don't know what happened to [their parents] yet. Everyone is on their way down there and that's when they'll tell them. It's just devastating."

Greg, a muffler shop owner, and Sarah, a McDonald's manager, had reportedly saved for months to take their daughters on the Florida vacation which included Disney World and Universal Studios; they were headed to the beach at the time of the accident.

Meanwhile, the driver of the other car escaped with no injuries; an investigation is ongoing.
