IDAHO - An online fundraiser has been established in support of a Lewiston couple who were both injured in a fatal head-on collision last week on U.S. Highway 95 near Winchester, ID. Both Steve and Gail Dygert were injured in the crash that also claimed the life of a 75-year-old Seattle woman.
According to family members, Steve and Gail have both undergone surgery since the crash on the early morning hours of Friday, March 24. Steve had surgery on his femur and has since been released from the hospital. Meanwhile Gail had to be air lifted to Spokane where she remains for treatment of her injuries, which include a shattered hip.
Steve, who is now in Spokane at Gail's side after being released following his surgery, supports both himself and his wife financially.
"The money raised here will help with the financial burden this has placed on them," read the GoFundMe established to help the family. "If anyone knows Steve, he would literally do anything for anyone. He is always the first person to offer help. I'm hoping we can help them and help relieve some of the stress."
At the time of this writing, the GoFundMe fundraiser has raised a total of $3,670 of its $10,000 goal. To view the GoFundMe or to donate, click HERE.
According to the Idaho State Police, preliminary investigation into the crash indicated that the Seattle woman was traveling southbound on US95 when she crossed over the center line and struck the Dygert's Chevy Equinox as they were traveling northbound.
