JENKS, Okla. -- A local soccer community is standing together after a horrific car crash killed one of its young players along with his mother and an 11-year-old boy.

Within less than 24-hours, more than $66,000 has been raised for the Van Horn family’s expenses on GoFundMe.

Troopers say 40-year-old Erin Van Horn died in Monday's crash along with her 10-year-old son Zachary and 11-year-old Beck Kitterman. Van Horn’s 13-year-old daughter Lauren remains in the hospital.

Two other teens were also injured in the crash. 13-year-old Lizzie Edwards and Isabella "Izzy" Kitterman remain in the hospital.

Two other GoFundMe pages have been set up for the Edwards and Kitterman families by close family friends.

Loved ones have been paying their respects at the soccer field where one of the victims played.

A soccer coach set up a memorial Tuesday where flowers and cleats now line a fence.

Some of the boys on the league grew up playing soccer with 10-year-old Zachary Van Horn and 11-year-old Beck Kitterman.
