Donation accounts have been set up to aid the family of Addalyn Rose Selvig, the 10-year-old Helena girl who died June 9 when a pickup truck swerved off the roadway to avoid hitting another vehicle and struck her as she stood by her bicycle.
Donations can be sent by Venmo to @selvig-donations, her cousin Whitley Begger said Tuesday. She said there has also been a donation account set up through Valley Bank.
Meals are being provided through a Meal Train account at https://bit.ly/3MRo4As. Begger said freezer meals and gift cards for restaurants will be helpful for the family this summer, as they are unsure of their plans.
Selvig was hit by a Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck driven by a 56-year-old East Helena man, the Montana Highway Patrol said. Selvig was wearing a helmet.
Officials said the pickup truck was westbound on Canyon Ferry Road near Bannack Drive when it came up on another vehicle that had slowed down to make a turn onto Bannack Drive. The pickup truck driver took evasive action by swerving off the road.
