LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The mother who lost her family in a traffic collision in North Las Vegas last month is having a ceremony for her family on Saturday.

The traffic collision happened three weeks ago, and funeral arrangements were made possible thanks to contributions from around the country.

Watch a balloon release from the funeral:

A private ceremony was held just for those closest with Erlinda Zacarias, the mother who lost all of her children — the youngest just 5 years old — in the crash.

That was back on Jan. 29, and left nine people dead after a vehicle sped through the intersection at Cheyenne Avenue and Commerce Street at 100 mph.

A proper funeral is happening, and the public is invited to show its respects at the Palm NW Mortuary and Cemetery.

The ceremony will begin at 8 a.m., with the burial expected to happen around 11 a.m.
