GRANTSVILLE -- A family struggling to pay its medical bills following a terrible car wreck got some help from the community.

People stopped at the Grantsville Fire Department Saturday to participate in a fundraiser for Jared Perry and his son Dwayne. Those who attended checked out some cool cars, ate spaghetti and got their cars washed.

Jared and Dwayne Perry were driving along State Road 201 in July when their car collided with another. The Perrys survived; six people in the other car died.

Jared Perry is still in the hospital, and the bills are mounting.

Chris Trowbridge organized the fundraiser. "We don't want them to lose their home, or whatever, just because of a bad accident like this. We want to raise some money to help them out," he said.
