A GoFundMe page set up for the family of Erin Kaplan, the 39-year-old Ashburn mother who died in a car crash Friday on Evergreen Mills Road in Leesburg, has raised $32,000 in approximately 24 hours.

Around 4:50 p.m. Friday, the driver of a 2000 Thomas bus converted into a food truck was traveling east on Watson Road when they ran a stop sign and struck a 2014 Audi Station wagon traveling northbound on Evergreen Mills Road, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

The driver of the bus and two juvenile passengers were taken to the StoneSprings Hospital Center emergency room for treatment of minor injuries. They have since been released.

Kaplan, who was driving the Audi, lost her life at the scene. Additionally, an adult passenger and three juvenile passengers were airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital. Kaplan's son remains in the hospital in critical condition, according to the fundraising page. His mother-in-law is intensive care, according to the Washington Post.

"We hope they pull through," Faran Kaplan told the Post.

The Kaplans have three children – two daughters in addition to the son.

“We all will miss Erin forever,” Faran said on Facebook. “She was a wonderful, amazing mother to our kids and wife to me.”
