CREATED May. 7, 2013

Amargosa Valley, NV (KTNV) -- A crash Sunday night killed a mother and her two sons. Joyce, Jessie and Justin Howell were on their way home to Kingman, Ariz., when the crash happened. They were in Reno at a rabbit show.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said the Howell family was driving south on Highway 95 in their Toyota van when a Buick crossed over into their lane and hit them head on. Both cars burst into flames.

The driver of the Buick also died; his name has not been released.

Members of the family's church held a prayer service for the father and husband, who was not with his family at the time of the crash.

They have set up a fund through Chase Bank. The fund is called Kingman Christian Church.

The 4H Club of Mohave County is also holding a fundraising car wash Friday, May 10 from 10 am - 6 pm.  It will be at the Taco Bell at  3220 Stockton Hill Rd in Kingman.
