FAIRVIEW TOWNSHIP -- More than a month after a vehicle hit a family in Luzerne County, an event was held to help them get back on their feet.

The Herbst family was badly hurt when a car ran into them while they were on a walk not far from their home in Mountain Top.

The community organized a fundraiser at Christ United Methodist Church on Saturday with food, music, and animals.

All donations went toward the family's recovery expenses.

    They made all this money from the insurance of the car who hit them, and now people are giving them more money, wow.

        Agreed. Let’s just pretend that the gentleman who hit them had insurance. There are always miscellaneous expenses, including transportation that insurance will not cover. Then in the event that he is not insured, it’s all on the family. And…I’ll be you a quarter if he’s not insured, he also has not assets so a lawsuit does not good.

      I’m surprised nothing has come out about the woman that hit them. How do you hit 7 people and not get charged with at the very least ‘Reckless Driving’?

      WNEP should have a reporter ask the Luzerne County district attorney why nothing is being done about the driver. Maybe the driver has connections. This is NEPA, after all.
