The family of a Crescent City man who lost his life in a car crash Tuesday is seeking the community’s help.

Jaime M. Torres, 39, died when his vehicle crossed the double line on U.S. Highway 101 on the Dr. Fine Bridge over the Smith River and into the path of an 18-wheeler traveling in the opposite direction. 

In response to his death, Torres’ family on Wednesday created an account with the online fundraiser website Go Fund Me. The page has raised $510 so far. To donate, visitwww.gofundme.com/da5g94.

The family has also created the Torres Memorial Fund through Bank of America. The account number is 325044484435.
