WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family of a 2-year-old boy that died after a car crash on Southwest Parkway last week.
Friday morning, October 14, a Dodge Caravan stopped in the eastbound lanes of Southwest Parkway because of mechanical issues was rear-ended by a GMC Denali traveling in the same lane just after 6:30 a.m.
The driver of the van, a 25-year-old woman, and her two children, a 2-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl, were taken to the hospital. The 2-year-old, identified as Alyez Nappiar Flenoy, was flown to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth with serious head injuries.
Sgt. Charlie Eipper with the Wichita Falls Police Department confirmed the 2-year-old died of his injuries late Friday night.
The sister of the driver, Rachael Atodo, started a GoFundMe to help their family pay for the funeral expenses following the tragic loss.
The GoFundMe was started Sunday, and has already made over $1,000 in donations.
