Friends, family bid farewell to car crash victims

Friends and family said a final farewell to the family that died in last weekend's car crash on the Bronx River Parkway.

Hundreds of family members and friends flooded St. Raymond's Church for the funeral of Maria Gonzalez, her sister Maria, and their daughters Jocelyn, Neiley and Marley.

The funeral was held this morning in Castle Hill.

The family perished when their SUV, which was speeding on the Bronx River Parkway, hit a median and plunged over 60 feet into a wooded area of the Bronx Zoo.
