MARSHALL COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Three people from Nashville reportedly lost their lives Saturday afternoon following a crash involving a train in Marshall County.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a Toyota Corolla heading westbound along Depot Road crossed over some railroad tracks in Chapel Hill and was hit by a southbound train around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24.
THP identified the individuals who died as the driver of the vehicle, 22-year-old Duvraska Coronado, along with two passengers, 26-year-old Magyory Coronado and 29-year-old Welengang Coronado.
All three of these Nashville residents were wearing seatbelts at the time of the incident, authorities said.
According to a GoFundMe organized by a man who is allegedly the driver’s boyfriend, Duvraska and her two brothers — who also died in the crash — were born in Venezuela, but did not have any other family in the U.S. The purpose of the GoFundMe is reportedly to raise money to bring the siblings’ mother from Venezuela to Nashville so she can say goodbye to her children and take care of any legal procedures, as well as handle funeral expenses.
As of this writing, that GoFundMe has raised $5,026 toward its $36,000 goal.
