The family of a woman tragically killed in a traffic crash along with four of her children is raising money to pay for their medical expenses and burials.
A GoFundMe page collecting donations for funeral costs says that Jessica Noel was out with her children on a grocery run when she was hit by a semitrailer truck loaded with grain late Friday afternoon.
Authorities over the weekend said Noel, 32, was driving a Ford Expedition south on 263rd Street West in between Cheney and Clearwater when the semi driver ran a stop sign at 71st Street, leading to the devastating wreck. The Expedition hit the trailer, causing it to split in two, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Lt. Benjamin Blick said previously.
Noel; her 10-year-old daughter Anaiah and her sons, 4-year-old Jeffrey and 4-month old Hank were killed on site. Mack, a 23-month-old boy, died later at Wesley Medical Center.
