The family of Carlos Wolff, the FBI agent killed in a Montgomery County crash Friday night, has released a statement Sunday on his passing.

Family spokesperson Angeline Hartmann released the following statement to the media:

"Our Carlos was an amazing father, husband, uncle and brother who made us all very proud. He loved serving his country as a part of the FBI. He was always so helpful and giving, not just to his friends but strangers too. Our hearts are broken. We appreciate your prayers during this difficult time."

Wolff was a 11-year veteran of the FBI and leaves behind his wife, a 7-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter, according to Hartmann.

Wolff and Sander Cohen, a Deputy Chief with the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office, died after they were hit by a car on I-270, according to police.

Maryland State Police say that Cohen called into the Rockville Barrack at around 10 p.m. saying that he was on the scene of an apparent single-vehicle crash north of Gude Drive in the fast lane of southbound I-270.

Wolff was the driver of the damaged vehicle and police say both men had moved from their vehicles and were standing in the shoulder. That is when another car drove by and looked like it was trying to avoid the two vehicles by driving in the shoulder, authorities say.

The car hit Wolff and Cohen, sending them both over the jersey wall to the other side of I-270 where Cohen was hit by another vehicle, officials say.

Carlos was an American University graduate and one of six children of Maria and Jorge Wolff, according to Hartmann.

No charges have been filled in the crash at this time but authorities say the case remains under investigation.
