Family devastated over loss

Ever so tragically, a mother of three, her children, and a family friend all died as a result of a semi accident, which occurred Saturday in Kansas City. Likewise, friends and family are still in shock over the sudden loss of an entire family in the blink of an eye. The driver and mother of three were Shante Hopkins, which was from Kansas City, but had been living in Warrensburg, Missouri at the time of the accident. Around rush hour, Hopkins was driving on I-435 when she stopped on the far right lane of traffic near the Eastwood Trafficway.

Sadly, soon after Hopkins stop, her car was crashed into from behind by a large tractor-trailer. All passengers inside the vehicle died as a result of the horrific crash. The fatalities included: Ja Riah Hutchison age three, Ja Nijah Hutchinson, age two, Tay Shawn Hutchinson, which was seven months old, and Hopkins friend, 17-year-old, Dominique Johnson. The driver of the semi was unhurt in the accident, has been cooperative with police, and also tested negative for drugs and alcohol. Obviously, the family of Shante is inconsolable, and as of late have no idea what they're going to do with the sudden and tragic loss of the family members.
