Somerset —

As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 800 people had “liked” the page and were following updates on Emma and Clay Miracle. 
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Officers who first made it to the scene of the wreck Tuesday reported wet roadways, but investigators are declining to make any statements about what may have led to the crash until the investigation is complete. 
“We are investigating whether or not the wet roadway or the rain that was falling at the time played a part in the cause of the collision,” said Lt. Shannon Smith, with SPD. “The Accident Reconstruction Unit will attempt to estimate the speed of both vehicles, based upon the measurements, crush analysis of the vehicles, and the friction value of the roadway they compiled during their on-scene investigation last night.”
Lt. Smith said Emma and Clay Miracle and Michelle and Samuel Smith were wearing their seat belts when the collision happened.
