Brian Carrol GoFundMe

PHILLIPS — A fundraiser has been launched to help the family of Brian Carrol, the 15-year-old Dixfield boy killed in a single-vehicle crash Nov. 14 in Phillips.

Carrol died after a car he was riding in left the roadway and struck several trees along the side of state Route 142, also known as Weld Road.

Carrol’s older brother and a family friend survived the crash. They were treated at Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington and later released.

Maine State Police are investigating the wreck.

The fundraiser was launched earlier in the week by friends of the Carrol family.

“The Carrol family NEEDS our support to covered expenses for the funeral and medical care,” according to the GoFundMe page. “Brian’s mother, Stephanie is a veterinary technician at the animal emergency clinic in Lewiston Maine and has devoted her life to care for all the animals who needed medical care,” according to the page. “Now is time to support her family.”

The fundraiser seeks $15,000 to help cover expenses. By Friday afternoon, it had received roughly $14,000 in donations.

The fundraiser can be found at Cash or check donations can also be made at the Animal Emergency clinic at 37 Strawberry Ave. in Lewiston.
