Softball tournament for families impacted by South Pittsburgh fatal car accident

JASPER, Tennessee (WDEF)– A softball tournament was held, throughout today, to raise 5 thousand dollars for the families impacted by the last weekend’s fatal car accident that killed 4 people and put a 5th in the hospital.

The community has come together, throughout this entire event, and organizers say the support for one another is what’s needed during a tough time like this.

“I know, if it was me and I was in the situation, I would want someone to help me. So, that was our main goal was to just do what we would want to be done for us, honestly. We’re a small town but as you can tell we’re mighty. We’ve raised quite a bit of money and we’ve all come together.  It doesn’t matter what city you’re from, or anything like that, we just decided this was all worth it,” said organizer Carley Long.
