Support continues to pour out for a Blount County church who lost two of its members in a deadly crash Sunday.

45-year-old Jeff Trussell and 16-year-old Courteney Kaliszweski were killed when an SUV hit their van carrying 12 people head-on. Several others were hurt.

Now, the Zaxby's store in Seymour is planning a fundraiser for Kaliszweski's family. She had applied to work at the store and was getting ready to start soon. Owners Todd and Erin Strange wanted a way to help the Kaliszweski family.

On Thursday, September 27 from 5 to 10 p.m., Zaxby's will donate a percent of all their sales to the family.

According to Pastor Bob Lynch, only one person injured still remains in the hospital, and they have moved out of intensive care.
