Jackie Hartman-Sani has set up an online fundraiser website to help pay for funeral expenses for her nephew James Valle (pictured above), who was killed in a DUI-related car accident on New Year’s Day in Burien:

Early on Jan. 1, a suspected DUI driver crashed into a tree while traveling northbound on 12th Ave South near 112th Street, killing Valle and seriously injuring three others (including Emily Ann, who was paralyzed).

As of Wednesday, Jan. 8, $1,620 had been raised by 25 people in three days.

“…our family would appreciate anything you can give,” Jackie said on the website.
