Community rallies for family of dad killed in crash
More than $30,000 has been raised in just 24 hours in an outpouring of community support for the grieving family of Adam Lumsden, the Logan man who was tragically killed in a Bracken Ridge car accident on January 23.
The 37-year-old father-of-two was driving home from a game of ice hockey when his car veered off the road, into the front yard of a suburban home on Telegraph Rd, where the vehicle flipped and crashed into a tree at around 10.30pm.
He is survived by his wife, Warner resident Nikki-Lee Holden and their two children, aged five and 15 months old.
Adam's brother-in-law Brent Holden organised the GoFundMe for the family on January 26, stating, "the harsh reality is love and support won't be enough to pay a mortgage and future costs of raising a young family".
"Adam's passing was sudden and tragic, which has been extremely difficult for all his family and friends to comprehend," Mr Holden said.
"I am reaching out for help … no matter how big or small, to go towards the cost of helping Nikki and kids during this horrific time."
Their eldest child was due to start prep today.
