Seriously injured child and family hospitalized in pedestrian crash in West Roxbury
An online fundraiser was set up for the family of five injured in a pedestrian crash in West Roxbury on Friday morning.
So far the GoFundMe for the benefit of Mark and Jess Tobin, and their three children, ages 3, 1 and 1, raised almost $ 72,000, far exceeding the announced goal of $ 10,000.
âEvery member of the family suffered significant injuries in the crash and will need all the support they can get for their future recovery,â the fundraiser said.
Just before 10 a.m. on Friday, the family of five were involved in an accident as they walked near Center and Hastings streets. A photo from the scene showed a pickup truck that appeared to be leaning over a retaining wall and a stroller lying on its side.
One child was reportedly seriously injured; none of those involved appeared to have fatal injuries, officials said at the time.
