Mirielle Danbury died at the scene.

Monroe Danbury was taken to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in Hamilton in critical condition and later transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton for emergency surgery, where he later died.

The limo driver was also taken to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital with serious injuries.

The tractor trailer driver was not seriously hurt.
