GoFundMe raising money for father of daughters killed in Ohio crash

An online fundraiser to assist the father of two daughters, and his unborn grandchild, who were killed in a Christmas Eve crash is two-thirds of the way to its goal.

The GoFundMe account is for Dave Hahn, whose daughters; Karen Boehne and Lauren Hahn, along with his son-in-law Jeremy Boehne and ex-wife, Kim Siegrist of Brighton, were killed on December 24th when a semi tractor trailer slammed into their cars as they traveled together on southbound I-75 north of Dayton, Ohio. Karen Boehne was also pregnant with a baby boy at the time.

The Boehnes married earlier this year and met while at Hartland High School, where Hahn also was a graduate.

The fund was created by Amrit Harvey of Troy, a co-worker of Dave Hahn, and has a $30,000 goal. As of Saturday morning, more than $20,000 has been raised.

“No parent should ever have to go through tragedy of losing their children or grandchild,” states the GoFundMe page. “Please consider donating to help ease the monetary burden for Dave during this very difficult time.”

The driver of the truck that killed his family, 29-year-old Dayren Rocubert of Florida, has been charged with five counts of vehicular homicide. Court records indicate the charges are “drug or alcohol” related. He entered a not guilty plea and posted a $125,000 bond pending a January 30th pretrial hearing.
