A givealittle page has been setup for the family of the four year old boy who died in a car accident in Dannevirke on Friday.

The accident happened on SH2 at the Wahipai Reserve around 4.20 last Friday afternoon.

A friend of Chloe Foster, whose son Dylan died in the accident, setup the page, with just over $15,000 raised as at this morning.

The givealittle page described Dylan as a “vivacious, courageous little boy” and “an old soul”.

The money will be used to help with funeral costs and ongoing support for the family.
