MANILA, Philippines - The families of two Filipinos killed in a crash in Hawaii are still in shock over what happened to their kin.

The relatives of Josefina Visaya, 61 and Patrocinia Cadang, 54, are still grieving after the two women were killed in a road mishap on September 11.

The victims, both from Bacarra, Ilocos Norte, were onboard a van on their way to Big Island, east of Hawaii when an allegedly speeding pick-up truck forced them off the road.

Hawaii News Now reported that the victims were landscapers working with Puna Certified Nursery.

Seven other people on board the van were injured in the accident.

Visaya’s niece, Juliata Sabia, remembers her as a kind person. Sabia said that her aunt would always spend her vacation with them in the province

The remains of the victims will no longer be repatriated to the Philippines as their immediate families are all based in Hawaii. With a report from Diane Dy, ABS-CBN News
