The page said Sundaram, who was born in India, was the only member of his family with a work visa, so they will have to relocate to India. The GoFundMe page was fundraising to help the family move to India, fund his daughters’ education and for general financial support.
The sheriff’s office told Channel 2 the crash is still under investigation, and it’s unclear whether the driver of the pickup truck will face charges.
A visitation was held for Sundaram on Monday afternoon. His remains have been flown to India for his funeral, the news station reported.
Given the outpouring of donations, an update posted to the GoFundMe page said the page’s fundraising goal of $300,000 will not be increased, despite the page surpassing its goal.
