Siblings killed in fiery Brampton, Ont. car crash identified by family

The three people killed in a fiery Brampton car crash on Saturday were teenage siblings.

Peel police confirmed the relationship of the victims Monday morning.

Emergency crews were called to Elmvale Avenue and Conestoga Drive shortly after 2 a.m. for a single-vehicle collision.

Police said a vehicle crashed into a tree in the area and burst into flames. When the fire was extinguished, three occupants in the vehicle were located and pronounced dead at the scene.

The siblings have been identified to CTV News Toronto by their uncle Alman Blackman as 19-year-old Tirzah, 17-year-old Judah, and 16-year-old Pharaoh Blackman.

“They all had hearts of gold. Anybody who knows them would tell you the same thing: they all had hearts of gold,” Blackman said Monday.

“It just sucks that they didn’t get a chance to make mistakes we all made. Everybody has stories, teenagers, reckless stuff….just sucks they didn’t get to make mistakes we all make.”

Blackman added that the victims’ mother, as well as their other siblings, are reeling from the loss.

“Everybody’s sad, everybody’s sad. Nobody feels good,” Blackman said.

Prior to the collision, police believe the white Honda Civic was travelling southbound and left the road for an unknown reason.

The front-end of the vehicle sustained significant damage following impact and a large amount of debris could be seen scattered around the crash site.

Nearby residents who spoke to CP24 at the scene said they were awoken by a loud bang in the middle of the night.

People who identified themselves as family and friends of the victims placed flowers and a teddy bear at the scene in the hours that followed the crash.
