Robert Mullins, a member of Victor Valley News Group, stopped by the crash site Tuesday afternoon and placed a pink and blue bunny in remembrance of the children.

“I didn’t see a memorial for Teresa and Pedro Jr. Basua. I decided to start one for them on the South East corner of Mojave and Amethyst. R.I.P little Angels, stated Mullins.

Rebecca Gonzalez-Leon has created a change.org petition to have a stop light installed at the intersection of Mojave Drive and Amethyst Road.

“Our hope is that in starting this petition it will reach Congressman Cooks office and expedite this process as it is a major safety concern to the residence of this area and surrounding,” stated Rebecca.

The petition has gained several hundred signatures in just a couple of hours.
