Default Family killed in California cliff crash had recent visit from Child Protective Servic

Unfathomable tragedy.

Too early to say yet but it looks like whoever was behind the wheel just plunged everyone in the van off the edge in a murder/suicide. We'll see.

Family killed in California cliff crash had recent visit from Child Protective Services, police say

A family of eight killed this week when their SUV plunged off a California highway had a visit from Child Protective Services just days before the deadly crash, the sheriff’s office said, as neighbors described other troubling incidents.

Jennifer and Sarah Hart, 39, were killed along with their six adopted children — Markis Hart, 19; Jeremiah Hart, 14; Abigail Hart, 14; Hannah Hart, 16; Devonte Hart, 15; and Sierra Hart, 12 — when their vehicle plunged off an ocean overlook on the Pacific Coast Highway about 150 miles north of San Francisco, authorities said.

Six children were believed to be in the vehicle with their parents, though three siblings — Hannah, Devonte (the boy in the viral 2014 protest photo) and Sierra — haven't been found.

On Friday, three days before their vehicle was found, Child Protective Services were called to the Hart house in Woodland, Wash., a small city outside Portland, Ore. where they moved to in May 2017, according to Oregon Live.

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services had opened an investigation after the children were “identified as potential victims of alleged abuse or neglect,” Oregon Live reported, citing the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office. Bruce and Dana DeKalb, the next-door neighbors of the Harts in Woodland, told The Associated Press they called child services on Friday because they thought Devonte was going hungry. They said he had been coming over to their house too often in the past week asking for food.

Authorities attempted to reach the family three times since Friday, but couldn’t get in contact. The third attempt was made Tuesday, a day after their SUV was found. Signs showed the family planned for a short trip.

Not an accurate representation of a white person.
