Family and friends have set up a fund in Allissa Blake’s name to help pay for her funeral. The 20-year-old Olathe resident was killed Sunday in a one-vehicle car crash in Delta. The car had four occupants, of which Blake was a passenger. Her aunt was driving, and in the backseat were her infant daughter and cousin. The baby and driver sustained minor injuries, but the 14-year-old was ejected and is in critical condition. Donations to the Allissa Blake Fund can be made at any US Bank. Blake will be laid to rest Friday.
