Both vehicles were engulfed in flames after the accident threw them off the road and the truck landed on top of the family’s car.

Parents Gnanappan Nagarajan, 54, and Vijaya Lakshmi-Gopal, 45, were killed in the wreck along with their two sons, 24-year-old Athish Nagarajan and 23-year-old Dhinesh Nagarajan.

All four were pronounced dead at the scene.

“This is particularly heartbreaking — they were on a family trip when this happened,” Graves said.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing, but police officers do not believe impaired driving played a role.

Friends described Athish Nagaraja as a unique, talented individual who had great things in store for him.

He worked at Lucid Motors and was promoted quickly within the company, where he worked as a global supply manager.

Similar kind words were used to describe his younger brother.

“Dhinesh was so selfless,” his girlfriend Lily Rich told 12News.

“My memories of him are so special. My freshman year at ASU wouldn’t have been great if I hadn’t met him.”

The brothers lived in Tempe while their family was abroad in India.

Dhinesh was a musician and RA at Arizona State University last year. Rich said he was like family to her.

“He made it feel like home for me,” she said.

“I’m from Missouri so it’s difficult and scary going to Arizona and starting college and having that someone like I can go to him anytime and Dhinesh has made it so clear he’s a friend to us is. ”
