A Memorial Day collision between a car and a bus caused the death of three South Jersey teens. Their families are seeking the help of the community to defray funeral expenses. The three fatalities were identified as 16-years-old Teven Campbell, Absecon resident; 14-years-old Kira Strider, resident from Pleasantville and 16-years-old Amber Fernandez also a resident of Pleasantville. The trio was killed last Monday following the collision of a car and a bus in NJ Pleasantville.

Investigators reported that Melissa Rodriguez, age 18 of Pleasantville was operating her vehicle last Monday at around 1:50 o’clock in the afternoon traveling along Franklin Blvd. She had onboard six passengers, including Campbell, Fernandez and Strider at the time.

Rodriguez was behind the wheel when an NJ Transit bus, operated by Carmen Mazzagatti, age 69 of Galloway Township, was plying along the same way approaching the intersection of Old Turnpike Road.

Based on the report of investigator Rodriguez, the car of Rodriguez lost control and crossed the center line and collided head on with the bus.

The two teeners, Strider and Campbell died at the scene while Fernandez was rushed to an area hospital but was also pronounced dead a little after midnight.

During an interview with the press, Linda Gonzalez, an aunt of Fernandez expressed her sorrow but consoled herself with the thought that her niece is now in a much better place. She said that Amber was a beautiful person, in and out. She was always happy. Her family and friends are grieving and will surely miss her.

Meanwhile, officials of Pleasantville city told the press that the families of the three victims are not financially stable; it will be very difficult for them to pay for the funeral services.

Police Chief Jose Ruiz of Pleasantville recounted that the two girls were very close and spent most of their time together. It was the family’s idea to keep them together. Their services are conducted together and the information was that they will be buried together. This type of service will have added cost so they are trying to get help from the community.

Officials are trying to raise the amount of $5,000 to assist the families to defray for funeral costs and services.

Chief Ruiz said that they are trying to ask donation from the community with a short period of time and he is making his appeal to people who care. He said that the fatalities were really too young to end this way but they have to be given a good burial. Both families gave all possible addresses for the donations.

There will be a viewing for Tevin Campbell to be held at 3:00 o’clock in the afternoon at the Baptist Church of Mount Zion in Pleasantville.
