The Espinosa family was heading back from an Easter trip to Yosemite when CHP says Wyllie drove through a stop sign and into the family's car in Tulare, California.

Following the crash, the Providence Master Planned Community came out in support of the Espinosa family. The family lives near Fort Apache Road and Grand Teton Drive.

"When one person is taken out of our community, we are all affected by it," said Jenna Bell with Providence Master Planned Community following the crash.

A community event on April 1 gave friends and supporters an opportunity to write condolence letters to the family.

A GoFundMe account has raised more than $60,000 for the family.
