A 37-year-old mother of six who was returning to her Santa Clarita home late Friday night from a hospital visit with her premature twin babies was killed in a possible DUI crash, according to authorities and relatives. "I guess he had been up all night. He expected her to be home and an hour later was calling around and he couldn't get ahold of her".

A 21-year-old driver, who had reportedly been drinking, allegedly veered into oncoming traffic, crossed a median strip and hit Katie's auto.

Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Dantice told the Santa Clarita Valley Signal that "alcohol containers" were found in the auto.

Her husband, Jacob Evans, explained that their twin girls were not expected to survive but are now almost 8-weeks-old and thriving.

The newspaper reports that there were alcohol containers in the vehicle.

Evans died at the scene, police said. The police are still investigating the crash and have yet to announce if alcohol played a part in the accident, despite the family saying it was a drunk driver.
