Crash that Killed Family May Have Been Intentional

  • Court docs: Speedometer in Woodland family's car 'pinned' at 90 mph in deadly California crash

Baarts said that information, along with the lack of skid marks where the auto - containing moms Jennifer and Sarah Hart and at least three of their six kids - went over, leads authorities to believe the act was intentional, KPTV reported.

"This family was fantastic", Jennifer Hart's friend wrote on Facebook. The family had once lived in Minnesota and one of the mothers was the subject of an abuse investigation in Douglas County, according to court and police records. He said the office was working with California authorities to find the missing children. The missing children may have been washed out to sea, authorities say.

The Hart Tribe, as they were known, took spontaneous road trips, and friends believe they may have been on one of those adventures when their SUV veered off the Pacific Coast Highway onto rocks in the ocean.

As the investigation into the crash continues, a search warrant was issued for the Hart home in Woodland, Wash. and authorities hope it will lead to more clues about what happened that fateful day.

Days before the wreck was discovered, neighbors called Washington state child-welfare authorities to say one of the youngsters had been coming to their house nearly daily asking for something to eat and complaining that his parents were withholding food as punishment.

He added that although investigators were still verifying the newly discovered information, police now believe a felony has been committed.

"Their daughter is begging us please, please, please don't make her go back and that they are abusing her", said Dekalb. "It's really hard to imagine", she said. ".that her mom put her in the bathtub and turned on the cold water and then hit her".

Dekalb said there were signs of trouble, prompting her to call child protective services.

The child told police that Jennifer Hart hit her.

Upadhyay further informed that two cases were registered and special investigation team (SIT) was formed for the investigation. While many are cheering, there are students who are also stressed and parents claiming this is simply not acceptable.

Sarah Hart told police she and her partner didn't usually spank their children.

Sarah Hart was convicted of misdemeanor domestic assault of Abigail in 2011 in Minnesota.

On Sunday, the CHP said they had reason to believe the crash was intentional. It was not clear when or why the family moved out of state. Emergency responders found the bodies of three of their six children - Markis, 19, and Jeremiah and Abigail, both 14 - outside the vehicle, which landed upside down on the rocky shoreline below the cliff. The remaining three children - Devonte Hart, 15; Hannah Hart, 16; and Sierra Hart, 12 - are still missing but are believed to have also been in the vehicle. Devonte Hart had a moment of fame in 2014, after he was photographed hugging a Portland, Ore., police sergeant at a protest related to unrest in Ferguson, Mo., over the shooting of an unarmed black youth.

Neighbors Dana and Bruce DeKalb told the Oregonian newspaper that Devonte had asked them for food for himself and his siblings after his parents withheld it as punishment. "This kid was totally losing her mind", he told the paper.

A caseworker went to the house, but found no one home.

"We have not made any findings in this investigation and we had no prior history with this family", the agency said.

On Thursday, authorities in Washington state combed through the family's home for information.

Deputies searched the home for bills, receipts or other evidence that could reveal why the family left.

"There have been red flags", he said, but did not elaborate. "Tides are strong and unpredictable", Van Patten said, according to the Associated Press. He also said authorities believe all six children were in the vehicle that day. "They transformed these kids' lives".
