Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A fundraiser has been set up to benefit the family of the Rochester woman who was killed in a traffic accident over the weekend.

The GoFundMe site has a goal of $5,000 and had raised nearly $ 2,500 as of 4:00 PM Monday.

Killed in the accident was 24-year-old Joharmi Rubio. Her 27-year-old husband Luis Rubio Lunar was driving the car and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Here is the message in the GFM post:

Last Saturday night (12/19/2020) our friends Luis and Joharmi suffered an unfortunate traffic accident, where a car that was coming at high speed hit them from the rear. Joharmi, only 24 years old, did not survive the battle.
Joharmi continues to be light for all, she has left us an inexplicable and inconsolable emptiness. It is a sad reality that no one can accept yet. She was a very happy, energetic, fighter and dreamy person; always with a smile on his face. She left us so many unforgettable memories that we will never be able to forget.
We appreciate the support that you can provide in this difficult and painful situation, every grain of sand counts to help the family with the expenses that come.
