A fundraising campaign for the family of the NSW police officer whose daughter was killed in a highway accident near Casino last Friday has topped the $50,000 mark.
Elle Underhill, the four-year-old daughter of Richmond Local Area Command Senior Constable Steve Underhill and wife Michelle, was killed in the accident on the Bruxner Highway.
Her two-year-old sister, sitting in the back seat of a red Mazda 323 with Elle, was transferred to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane for treatment.
A floral tribute and teddy bear now mark the spot on the Bruxner Highway, 10km east of Casino, where Senior Constable Underhill attended the scene to find his red Mazda 323 torn in half and his two daughters in the wreckage.
In response to the tragedy, and with the permission of the family, a friend, Tammie Valle, set up the Gofundme campaign to help the family with expenses.
Ms Valle said money raised would be used towards helping the family with the funeral , memorial and help with accommodation, medical expenses and travel costs.
The campaign has so far raised almost $57,000.
