The mother of three children who were killed when an alleged drunk driver smashed into them in Sydney’s west over the weekend has broken down as she visited the crash site.
Leila Geagea’s children Anthony, 13, Angelina 12 and Sienna, nine, died when they were struck in Oatlands just before 8pm on Saturday.
Their cousin 11-year-old Veronique Sakr was also killed in the crash.

A fifth child, 11, was taken to hospital in a critical condition and two other girls, aged 10 and 13, suffered minor injuries.
The group of seven were on their way to buy ice cream when the crash occurred.
Geagea was seen visiting a makeshift memorial at the crash site on Sunday morning.
Photographs taken at the site show the heartbroken mother breaking down, with several people around her.
Several members of the community were also pictured laying bouquets of flowers, toys and notes.
The children’s father Danny Abdullah said he was “numb” after losing his three children.
“Yesterday I lost three of my children,” Danny Abdullah told reporters on Sunday.
Abdullah said being a dad was his full-time job.
“They were my priority. And now they’re gone,” he said.
The father-of-three said the children had gone out for a walk.
“These kids were just walking innocently, enjoying each other’s company and this morning I woke up I’ve lost three kids,” Abdullah said.
“Please make sure you loved your loved ones. Your kids especially, because you just don’t know when.”
Samuel William Davidson, 29, was allegedly behind the wheel of the 4WD Mitsubishi ute and three times over the legal blood alcohol limit at the time of the crash.
Davidson was arrested after returning a positive roadside breath test result and allegedly recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.15.
He has been charged with 20 offences including four counts of manslaughter, dangerous driving occasioning death and grievous bodily harm, negligent driving and drink-driving.
