Sarah Hyland’s 14 years old cousin died in a tragic car accident that took place due to a drunk driver. Her cousin, named Trevor Canaday was killed in Nebraska.
According to USA Today, the Omaha Police confirmed that Trevor died on Saturday. The reports claim that Canaday was along with his father in the car when a vehicle being driven by a drunk driver crossed the red signal and crashed into their car.
Canaday was ejected out of the car due to the deadly accident and could not bear the head injuries. He lost his battle of life and died. His father who was accompanying him to reach the Show Choir event is in the hospital and is undergoing surgeries.
He too has gotten serious head injuries and is admitted at the Nebraska Medicine. The drunk driver has been identified as Jeffrey Eggeling who reportedly ran away on foot after colliding with the Canaday’s car.
Sarah Hyland, the American actress who is well famous for her role in “Modern Family” went to Twitter to share the tragic news. Here is what her tweet read:
“Yesterday my 14 year old cousin was killed by a drunk driver. My Uncle is in the hospital awaiting more surgeries. PLEASE keep your prayers with my family during this horrific time.”
JEFFERY EGGERLING had two prior DUI’s and tried to RUN from the scene of the crime after hitting my Uncle’s car SO fast that my 14 yr old cousin, who was wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle, May he rot in hell.”
Her tweet also shared a “Go Fund Me Page” link that is helping the Canaday family with funeral and hospital expenses. She is thankful to her co-stars Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould for donating money for the very cause.
She has raised approximately $US30,000, but people aren’t happy with it. they say that she could have undergone the expenses herself rather than “begging for donations”.
