Police said, the family was killed on U-S 95, near Las Vegas, when their car was hit head-on by a vehicle going more than one-hundred miles per hour. The driver of that vehicle, which was being chased by police, was also killed.

The Boise, Idaho-based Wildland Firefighter Foundation is trying to help Smith's relatives, many of whom live out of state, travel to the funerals.

Smith was a firefighter and assistant fire-crew supervisor at Zion National Park.
