No one survived after a wrong-way driver on I-75 in Lexington, Kentucky slammed into a family of five's SUV early Sunday.

The coroner's office believes 41-year-old Joey Lee Bailey was under the influence when he hit the Abbas family's vehicle head-on and caused it to catch fire.

The family was identified as 42-year-old Issam Abbas, 38-year-old Rima Abbas, 14-year-old Ali Abbas, 13-year-old Isabella Abbas and 7-year-old Giselle Abbas.

They were traveling home to Michigan from a Florida vacation.

Services for the family began Sunday and will go into Tuesday according to the city of Dearborn, Michigan’s Instagram account.

Lexington police are still investigating the crash.
