On Thursday, two people were killed and three others were injured in a horrific accident at a Middlesex center. A GoFundMe account was set up on Friday to help the family of Aleah Van Erp, 17, who was killed in a car accident.

Just after 10.30 a.m. on Thursday, police were called to the Middlesex Center on Amiens Road, near Oxbow Drive and Melrose Drive.

According to police, two people died in the accident, and three others were taken to the hospital, two of whom were in critical condition.

Police have not released any information about the victims, but according to the GoFundMe page, one of them is 17-year-old Aleah Van Erp.

“Aleah is full of energy and loves everything animals, nature, art, photography, crafts, her friends and family,” according to the GoFundMe page. “She will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her.”

The funds raised will benefit the Van Erp family, according to the fundraiser. By Friday evening, nearly $21,000 had been raised.

“Lola is tough, vivacious, and playful, with a smile that can light up a room,” read her obituary, which was emailed to the Liberty Press by her brother, Quintin Fentie.

The crash happened around 10:30 a.m. on Amiens Road, south of Melrose Drive in central Middlesex, according to Ontario Provincial Police. According to police, two of them were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and a fifth with less serious injuries.

The three surviving teenagers are thought to be Strathroy high school students. One of them was still in the hospital as of Monday.

Fentie and Van Erp are Strathroy District Collegiate Institute Year 12 students. Lisa Metivier, a close friend of the Van Erp family, previously said the couple and one of the surviving teenagers “have been the perfect threesome since third grade”.

Fentie, the younger sister of two brothers, turns 17 this week. “She died seven days before her birthday,” said Quentin, her older brother.

Fentie “could make everything she did look effortless,” according to her obituary. She was a hard worker who was eager to further her education.”

She was described as dependable and “always smiling” by a former coworker.

“She has a really beautiful smile, and if you need someone to talk to, she’s there for you,” says Kate Bradley, a Tim Hortons employee in Stella Roy.

Van Erp, like Fentie, has a passion for animals and plans to attend college to become a veterinary technician. Van Hopp was described by her family and friends as a “old soul” who enjoyed photography and nature.

Strathroy principal Stephanie Hambies said in an email to parents on Monday that the school would provide face-to-face support on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“School social workers and counselors will be available to meet with groups and provide individual sessions for students and families,” Hambys wrote in an email, adding that representatives from the Canadian Mental Health Association will also be present.

Meanwhile, Fentie’s eldest cousin launches an online fundraising campaign to help her family. It had raised more than $14,000 by late Monday afternoon.

“Lola has a beautiful smile that seems to emanate from her soul, making her eyes sparkle,” Trish Rice, Lola’s cousin, wrote on the donation page.

“She will be remembered and never forgotten,” she declared.

Fentie will pay a visit on Friday and there will be a funeral on Saturday.

According to her obituary, Van Erp will have a visitation and funeral on Wednesday. Donations to Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation are greatly appreciated, according to family members.
