Fundraiser supporting family of blizzard crash victim west of Regina

An early March blizzard with blowing snow and reduced visibility west of Regina forever changed the lives of Jeremy Flegel and his one-year-old son, Bennett.

On March 7, Flegel's wife, Jen Anderson Flegel, was killed when her SUV was involved in a multi-vehicle collision on the Trans-Canada Highway near Pense, Sask.

Jen, 31, and Jeremy had been married for just over a year and had recently purchased a home together.

Supporters have started a GoFundMe page to raise enough money to meet Jeremy and Bennett's immediate needs. As of midday Thursday, the effort had raised about $5,000.
