Second Twin Dies After Crash That Killed Mom, Uncle

Tragic story gets worse

A 3-year-old boy died Wednesday from injuries he suffered in an alleged drunken driving crash in Oakland Monday morning that also claimed the lives of his twin brother and their mother and uncle.

Tiffany Denise Reynolds, the 26-year-old Richmond woman suspected of driving the vehicle under the influence, fractured her neck and severely hurt her chest and is stable condition, according to the CHP.

Reynolds, who was the mother's domestic partner, allegedly lost control of the 1990 Honda Accord on northbound Interstate Highway 880, skidded across multiple lanes and crashed into a concrete wall near Hegenberger Road around 1:30 a.m. Monday, CHP Officer Sam Morgan said.

Twins Jason and Jessie Woodson of Richmond were not in car seats or seat belts during the crash. One of them was thrown from the car, the other was found pinned beneath the steering column, CHP Officer Sam Chase said.

Officers did not see car seats.

Their mother Sara Marie Terra, a 23-year-old Richmond woman, and her 20-year-old brother David James Terra of Modesto, were pronounced dead at the scene, Morgan said.

One of the twins died at Children's Hospital Oakland the same day around 9:30 a.m. and the other died Wednesday just after noon, according to  the Alameda County coroner's bureau.

Reynolds was scheduled for an arraignment Wednesday on suspicion of felony driving under the influence, gross vehicular manslaughter and driving on a suspended license, according to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.
