Almost $25,000 has been donated in less than two weeks for the daughters of Jasmina Blazevska, who passed away following a horror motorcycle crash near Picton last month.
A Ford Falcon XR6 and a Harley Davidson motorcycle collided at the intersection of Picton Road and Wilton Park Road on February 28 at 12.45pm.
The 56-year-old rider of the motorcycle and the 47-year-old pillion passenger, Jasmina Blazevska, were thrown from the Harley Davidson as a result of the collision.
They both suffered multiple injuries and were taken to Liverpool Hospital in a serious condition.
On Sunday, March 7, a GoFundMe page was set up by Ms Blazevska's daughter's partner and had raised more than $8000 in just two days.
It grew to $23,609 as of the morning of Tuesday, March 16, with donations coming from almost 200 different people.
Ron Guardala, who is the boyfriend of Marija Blazevska, said Ms Blazevska was found unconscious at the scene on February 28, and was in a deep coma until Sunday where she died.
"She has left behind two beautiful daughters Marija (20) and Angela (17), [who are both] students," he wrote.
"They would appreciate any help they could get from the community in this difficult time to assist them with funeral costs, and emergency funding as she was a single mother.
"Rest in peace Jasmina."
The 19-year-old male P-plater driving the XR6 has since been charged by police with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, and not displaying P-plates.
