An online fundraiser has been set up for the woman injured when an allegedly stolen truck crashed near the Boston Public Garden last week.
Kamila Guimaraes had been married for just a few weeks when she was injured. She’s also the mother of a 9-year-old son, according to the GoFundMe page.
The money will go to help her pay for rent and other expenses as she recovers, the page says, noting that she may be out of work for sometime, and could remain hospitalized “for a while.” It says she’s in critical condition.
As of Thursday afternoon, the fundraiser had brought in over $16,700 of a $100,000 goal.
The crash happened around 4:23 p.m. last Thursday, Boston police said in a press release. Keith Andrade, 58, of Boston, was later arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
