DEER LODGE, Mont. – A Powell County EMT was killed after an accident at a demolition derby on Sunday, authorities and friends said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends of Darylynne Day, who leaves behind two young children and a husband.

NBC Montana reports the accident happened during the annual Tri-County Fair. It’s not clear if Day was working the event as an EMT or there as a spectator.

Powell County Sheriff Gavin Roselles reportedly said the crash happened when one car jumped a fence and landed on nearby bleachers after becoming disabled on the track. Several people were trapped underneath the car.

Seven people were sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Roselles said first responders jumped in right away help.

The crash remains under investigation.

Donations for Day’s funeral can also be mailed to John Carlbom at 1003 Dixon Street, Deer Lodge, Montana, 59722.
