Fund set up for victims of last Wednesday's fatal accident

KSBY received photos of the baby and young father killed in a car crash with an Amtrak Train near Guadalupe last Wednesday.

The cause of the crash that killed Antonio Garcia Ortiz and his one-year-old daughter, Azulmi, is still under investigation. An attorney for the mother and wife of the victims says she is "very thankful," for the support she has received from the community during this difficult time. He expects the bodies of Ortiz and his daughter to be released tomorrow and arrangements are being made for a burial service in Mexico, where the couple is from.

Meanwhile, a fund has been set up to help the victims' family who lived in Santa Maria.

Donations can be made to the Maricela Montealgre Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank. The account number is : 6175841888.
