HESPERIA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a family of five killed when a van landed on top of their sedan was headed to Disneyland to celebrate a young girl's birthday.

Coroner division spokeswoman Sandy Fatland said Tuesday that relatives of the victims told her the family was making the drive from Hesperia to celebrate Cindy Jimenez's upcoming 4th birthday.

Fatland says the victims included 25-year-old Angelica Garcia, her boyfriend 30-year-old Gerardo Jimenez, their children 2-year-old Ivan Jimenez and 3-year-old Cindy, and Garcia's 9-year-old son Freddy Garcia.

Authorities say the sedan was parked at a stop sign in Hesperia early Sunday when a van drifted into the wrong lane and landed on top of it. The driver of the van had only minor injuries.

Sheriff's officials have not released the driver's name.
