The driver of the truck told authorities that his brakes had failed, resulting in the crash on Interstate 17 on Sunday.

Both vehicles were pushed off the road into an embankment when the truck landed on top of the family’s car, engulfing both vehicles in flames.

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

All four were pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves, the parents were visiting Sedona from India to see their sons.

“That’s especially heartbreaking they were on a family outing when this occurred,” said Graves.

An investigation into the crash is underway, however, troopers don’t believe impaired driving was a factor.

Friends described Athish Nagaraja as a one-of-a-kind and talented person who had big things in store for him.

Athish worked at Lucid Motors and had been quickly promoted within the company, working as a global supply manager.

Similar kind words were used to describe his younger brother, Dhinesh.

“Dhinesh was so selfless,” said his friend, Lily Rich to 12News. “My memories are so special with him. My freshman year at ASU would not have been as amazing if I hadn't met him.”

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

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

“He made it feel like home to me,” she said. “I’m from Missouri, so traveling to Arizona and starting college is hard and scary and having that somebody like I felt like I could go to him at all times, and Dhinesh made it so clear he was a friend to us.”

Rich’s friend, Quinn Talbot agreed, calling Dhinesh a “genuine soul.”

“It breaks my heart that he’s no longer with us, but he’s watching over us.”

EMILY PRESCOTT: Me, Dodi and Di... Ex-model Annie Cardone reveals she had a relationship with Dodi Fayed, 25 years after crash which killed Dodi and Princess Diana

Twenty-five years on from the car crash that killed Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, former model Annie Cardone has revealed that she once had a relationship with Dodi and recalls details of their first encounter.

Cardone, now a women's rights campaigner, writes in her book Menopause WTH about how Dodi impressed her with his dance moves and his soulful personality when they met at London club Tramp.

But she also claims his personality changed when he mixed cocaine with antidepressants, and says she soon worked out she wasn't the only woman in his life.

'My friends joked that Diana had my cast-offs,' she quips.

  Mel C still on the record

Dragons' Den's Steven Bartlett is feeling really really distraught after a thief pocketed a computer hard drive containing his podcast interview with Sporty Spice Mel C, right.

On his The Diary of a CEO podcast on YouTube, Steven, 30, said the theft had been 'heartbreaking' and he 'carried a sense of guilt' over Mel's story being lost.

Luckily one of his cameras had recorded the audio so the episode was able to air in the end.

But the thief won't be getting lucky again, as Steven says: 'We have put many measures in place to make sure we never lose any audio or footage again.'

Sherlock star Andrew Scott tells me he gets annoyed when people call die-hard fans of the hit BBC crime drama 'creepy'.

Five years after Andrew, 45, played villain Moriarty, he says he still gets lots of Sherlock-related fan mail.

But he adds: 'Sport fans are never told they're creepy even though they are dressed up in their favourite things, so I don't think it's fair to say that of TV people.'

He stars in Amazon's new medieval comedy Catherine Called Birdy, so can expect some good old Anglo-Saxon insults next!
