In the wake of Friday’s fatal car accident in Coquitlam that left two young girls dead, a crowdfunding page has been set up to help the family with the loss.
As of Wednesday morning, the YOUCARING Compassionate page has almost doubled its $20,000 goal.
The fundraising site, set up by family and friends, says portion of the money is meant to help the Hernandez family pay for funeral expenses of nine-year-old Ella Reese and her three-year-old cousin, Tyler Mollie Wong.
The multi-vehicle accident happened along Lougheed Highway near Pitt River Road, also killing a 30-year old woman.
City council has been calling for safety enhancements in that area.
