FOGELSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - The family of an eastern Pennsylvania mother who died in a crash last week says she maneuvered her sport utility vehicle to save her quadruplets in the wreck.

Thirty-nine-year-old Heather Delp was driving her son and three daughters to the movies Friday when the vehicle hit a tractor-trailer on Interstate 78 in Lehigh County. Police say the front corner of the driver’s side of the SUV hit the back of the truck as Delp tried to steer toward the shoulder.

Delp’s mother, Dolores Young, tells the Reading Eagle (https://bit.ly/1HXY7pO ) police said her daughter maneuvered the SUV to sacrifice herself for the children. Bystanders helped the quadruplets escape the mangled vehicle, but Delp likely died instantly.

Her children weren’t seriously injured.

The truck driver wasn’t hurt.
