“It was so, so heartbreaking,” Adams told CBS2’s Andrea Grymes. “She was such a sweet girl. Every time I saw her, I loved her. So sweet.”
Police said Adams’ 18-year-old daughter Chyna along with Jimenez and 20-year-old Robert Jones were all passengers riding in a Nissan Maxima being driven by 19-year-old Aramis Broadus Sunday night.
Around 9 p.m., police said Broadus was headed north on Little East Neck Road near Gordon Avenue in West Babylon when he lost control of the car and hit a telephone pole before slamming into a home.
