Twin sisters who relatives described as inseparable were killed in Chicago over Memorial Day Weekend driving home from a friend’s going-away party.

Brisa Delapaz was behind the wheel early Sunday morning when she and her twin, Abril Delapaz, died crashing their Dodge Neon into the back of parked semi-truck, the Chicago Tribune reported. Around 15 minutes later, the 26-year-old sisters were pronounced dead, officials said.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

“It’s just crazy. They came into this world together and went out together,” their brother Pablo Delapaz told the Chicago Tribune.

Only two weeks before the fatal crash, Abril had graduated from Roosevelt University in Chicago with a degree in biochemistry. Her fraternal twin, Brisa, had been taking classes at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale in hopes of pursuing a career in zoology.

Grieving relatives remembered the sisters who grew up on the city’s Far South Side as “special girls.”

“What can I say, this is a terrible loss. My beautiful daughters are gone,” their mother Maria Carvajal told news station WGNTV.

Family members have created a GoFundMe page for the sisters to raise money for funeral costs.
