Local Teen Killed In Car Crash Donates Organs, Family Needs Help
The local teen that died Tuesday from injuries he sustained in a car crash has donated his organs. His family is in need of help, here’s how you can help.
There is no way to find good in the loss of a young person’s life, but in the wake of tragedy, Colon’s family has decided to help others.
“Since Dillon was such a giving child we have donated all of his organs,” Nicole Wrona said in a GoFundMe page setup for Dillon’s family.
The GoFundMe page was setup by family friends, because Dillon’s medical expenses exceeded his family’s financial budget.
As of this writing, over $9,000 has been raised. Click Here to Donate.
While driving home from school, on Wednesday May 31, Colon’s car left the road and hit a tree on Todd Hill Road in the Town of LaGrange.
Colon’s passenger, 17-year-old Ryan J Mucci of Poughkeepsie succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the crash the following day.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation, but speed is believed to be a contributing factor, police say.
Colon and Mucci were both Arlington seniors.
An earlier post incorrectly stated that the GoFundMe page was setup by the Millbrook Diner.
