Three members of a California family were killed in a drunk driving crash while on vacation in Texas.

Scott Latulippe, 41, was taken off life support Friday after the head-on crash last week between the Fiat his family was in and the Jeep Wrangler driven by 41-year-old Guy Brasted.

Nancy Latulippe, 38, and the couple's 14-year-old son Jackson died at the scene, KEYE-TV reports.

The couple's 10-year-old daughter Keira survived the crash with non-life threatening injuries, and is now with family in California.

According to Austin police, Brasted was driving northbound on Research Boulevard near Mopac when he lost control of his vehicle, breaking through a cable barrier and slamming into the Fiat.

Brasted's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, police said.

Mark Latulippe, Scott's cousin, said the family is strong but heartbroken, especially for the sole survivor of the crash, Keira.

"Her whole world is now, never will be the same," Mark said. "He destroyed that little girl's family. She has family beyond that and we will take care of her and I will make sure she's okay. But he's destroyed a little girl's family."
