Online Fundraiser For Ingonish Women Killed In Crash
An online fundraiser for two Ingonish women killed in a weekend car crash has now raised nearly three times its original goal.
More than 15-thousand dollars has been pledged at the GoFundMe page for the families of 67 year-old Jennifer Westhaver and her daughter 36 year-old Katie Westhaver.
The women were killed Saturday after their car was involved in a three-vehicle crash on the Trans Canada in Dagger Woods, just east of Antigonish.
Two people in the second vehicle were taken to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital in Antigonish.
A 60-year-old Antigonish County woman later died at the hospital, while the other person remains in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
There was heavy rain on Saturday, but RCMP haven’t yet said if that was a factor in the crash.
