Family struggles after loved one is killed in crash, leaving behind 3-month-old baby
MANNFORD, Okla. (KTUL) -- A family is now working to pick up the pieces after losing their loved one in a crash earlier this month.
Three-month-old Holly Moore broke her femur in the head-on crash that killed her mom, 22-year-old Alicia Washington, and injured her dad.
"She was really lucky, they said the car seat saved her life," Moore's aunt, Jessica Williams said.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says another vehicle was heading east on State Highway 51 when it crossed the center line and hit the family.
"Everything has just been so grueling and it is so unreal," Williams said.
Williams never imagined losing her baby sister.
"She was amazing, fun, outgoing, funny, so caring and generous," Williams said.
Williams says she will be reminding her niece every day how special her mom was.
"Alli was the best mom," Williams said. "It is just devastating. She wanting nothing else than to have everything for her daughter."
But, it won't ever be the same.
"She's had a rough start but she is such a good little baby," Williams said.
While Moore's dad heals, Williams is taking care of her niece.
But, the entire family has a long road ahead of them, emotionally and financially.
"Her funeral was close to $10,000 and medical bills whatever that will be," Williams said.
Many have helped.
"All of the love and support and outreach has been amazing," Williams said.
And this family can use all the help they can get.
A GoFundMe page was set up for the family if you would like to donate.
You can also donate wipes, diapers, similac sensitive formula and clothes six to nine months to the new, Jiffy Trip in Mannford.
