A GoFundMe page has been created to help the family of the victims involved in a fatal  SUV crash on Highway 14 near Acton on Thursday.

“This is so tragic please help us raise money for the funeral cost” the page states.

As of 12:30 p.m. Saturday the campaign has raised $31,020 from 895 unique donors – far exceeding its original goal of $15,000.

Shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday morning an SUV headed northbound on Highway 14 overturned.

At the time of the collision the vehicle was carrying a 1-year-old infant, two 8-year-old children, a 14-year-old teenager and driver Karen Adams, 37, of Los Angeles.

The infant girl was pronounced dead at the scene while the rest of the injured passengers were transported to local hospitals.

 Keion Jones, 8, succumbed to his injuries at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on Thursday.

Adams was pronounced dead at Antelope Valley Hospital around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

Ray Yzguerra, a friend of the Jones Family, launched a GoFundMe page on Friday so as to offset the costs associated with Keion Jones’ funeral.

While no official cause of the accident has been ruled, the California Highway Patrol is still investigating the possible role of drugs and/or alcohol in the collision.

Donations to the Jones Family can be made here.
