Kyra Huot and Kevin Steich of Trumbauersville had plans.
Both graduates of Quakertown Community High School’s Class of 2017, and 22 years old, they shared a 3-year-old son, Landon.
They were getting married.
During the morning hours of Oct. 13, Steich was killed in a car crash on the connector bridge in Bristol Township and died at the accident scene, according to an ABC Action News report.
And those plans forever changed the lives of his fiancée and son Landon.
“At my young age, I never expected to be a single parent,” Huot explained during a phone interview on Oct. 15.
When her best girlfiend suggested a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money in the wake of the tragedy, she was hesitant and did not want to “take anything” from anyone.
But with assurances everything would be taken care of, she agreed to the crowd funding effort to benefit her son.
“A family friend created this GoFundMe page to help Kyra and baby Landon during this difficult time. In less than 24 hours, more than $7,000 was raised to help. The goal is $15,000,” said Meghan Kee, Washington based GoFundMe communications representative.
