Macaulay Culkin and his siblings in their large family are reeling from the traffic accident death of their sister Dakota, their manager tells PEOPLE.
"They're heartbroken. That I can tell you. They're just absolutely heartbroken," says Emily Gerson Saines, who manages Macaulay, Rory and Kieran Culkin.
The brothers were working on separate projects when they received the news that Dakota, 29, died after she was struck by a car Dec. 9 in West Los Angeles.

Dakota Culkin had the famous name, but didn't want the fame.
Macaulay's sister, who was killed in a traffic accident, was "a real sweetheart, a really good kid," says Dana Schroeder, a director who recently worked with the one-time art production assistant on an independent film Lost Soul.
"Dakota was very humble," Schroeder tells PEOPLE. "She didn't want to get in front of the cameras, she wanted to work behind the scenes."
Culkin, 29, was accidentally struck by a car in L.A. Tuesday night, and died the next day. No crime was committed, police say.

"The driver stopped, rendered aid, and identified himself as required by law," said French. "Detectives determined that the driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and that no crime was committed."
