(AP) COLUMBUS, Ohio - A husband and wife and their four daughters have been laid to rest after being killed in car crash involving an Ohio police officer

The funeral of the six family members came Saturday evening after regular prayers at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center just outside of Columbus.

Friday’s crash killed 39-year-old Eid Badi Shahad and his wife, 31-year-old Entisar Hameed. Their four daughters ranged in age from 2 to 16 years old.

The couple is survived by four sons, ages 5 to 17. The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/17BQYdM) only the oldest son could bear to attend the funeral.

The family was buried in five simple caskets, with Hameed sharing one with her youngest daughter.

The officer was injured. He was responding to a robbery call when the collision occurred.
