VANCOUVER - A young victim of one of Surrey, B.C.’s, most devastating car crashes will always be remembered as a beautiful and happy boy, according to those paying tribute to five members of the same family killed Sunday.

All members of the Sachdeva family, the victims — a five-year-old boy, a three-year-old girl, their mother, aunt and grandmother — were killed instantly when the Toyota Corolla they were travelling in was T-boned by a minivan.

Police allege the 46-year-old driver of the minivan ran a red light at 176th Street and 32nd Avenue near the U.S. border, before colliding with the family's vehicle.

A stuffed penguin now sits among the flowers and candles that began to appear Monday at the South Surrey intersection in memory of the Sachdeva family.

Friends and family identified the victims on social media as mother Rina, aunt Neelam, son Aneesh and daughter Jasica.
