Community yard sale to benefit family of girls killed in crash

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  Friday was the first day of a community yard sale for the families of the two girls who died in a fiery car crash in Pasco.

All the items to be sold were donated from people in the Tri-Cities, and all the profits will  help the families of Alex Hatley and Taylor Tefft.  The 12 and 11-year-old girls were killed in a car crash on Interstate 182, just west of the Road 100 exit.  Hatley's step-father, Tim Woodall, was driving at the time, and he was at the yard sale on Friday talking to friends and people who were there to support him.

A family friend, Dottie Reynold, spoke on his behalf, saying it's been a lot for the family to take in.  She says, "They're pretty overwhelmed, not only with the fact of the deaths, but also with everything that they're getting.  You know, I don't think they ever thought this would happen, or that they would have so much support behind them."

The yard sale continues Saturday and Sunday.  It's at 1125 West 15th Place in Kennewick, and will run each day from 8:00 a.m. until the last customer is gone or until they're sold out.
