CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) — A fundraiser was held Sunday for a 12-year-old girl who was killed in a rollover crash.

Friends and family of Kimmy Colyer gathered outside the Pizza Hotline in Carlisle for a car wash Sunday afternoon.

The group washed cars to raise money for the family’s hospital and funeral expenses.

Other businesses donated T-shirts, oil changes and other items.

Sunday was the second car wash the group had.

Colyer was killed in a crash on Union Road Friday, May 1. Her family said she was riding in the car with her sister and two friends.
