ATTICA, ind. (WLFI) - One day after tragedy hits, the Fox family home in Attica sits empty with just a dog barking through the glass.
On Wednesday, Daniel Fox, his wife Stacy and daughter Demara were all killed when their minivan was hit by a combine on State Road 25 about 4:45 p.m. Two more daughters, Demetria and Dakota, were rushed to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Family friend Margaret Carpenter was taken to IU Health Arnett in Lafayette.
Neighbor to the Fox family Kenny Roysdon said his heart broke when he heard the news.
"It makes you stop and think about life and where you should be going and where you should be looking," Roysdon said.
Attica resident Tommy Galloway is looking to help the three survivors. He said he knows several people who were devastated when they found about the crash. He said they are eager to help, even if they didn't know the family personally.
"I think it says a lot about who we are and a lot about how feel about each and every person who lives here," said Galloway.
Galloway is heading an effort to raise funds through a Facebook page. He said it helps to live in a small community where word travels fast.
"I found people are compassionate and helpful everywhere you go. I think the smaller community allows for a greater focus," Galloway said.
