ANACONDA, Mont. – A memorial procession is planned this weekend in honor of the EMT killed in a crash at a demolition derby.

First responders are planning the procession Sunday in honor of Darylynne Day, a Powell County EMT, who died on August 18. She left behind two young children and a husband.

Emergency vehicles will line up for the process at 11 a.m. at the Fairgrounds in Deer Lodge. The procession will leave at noon to get to Anaconda by 1 p.m., for the funeral.

As of Friday morning, a GoFundMe page has raised nearly $10,000 for funeral expenses.

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.
