Family and friends have now set up a fund for Kevin Coffta's six-year-old son Dawson. Coffta was killed Wednesday when he was struck by an SUV while towing a vehicle on the I-190.
It happened shortly before 5 A.M. on the I-190 south in the Town of Tonawanda, just south of the I-290 interchange.
Police say the Coffta was removing an abandoned car from the right shoulder of the road when he was hit by a car. That car then went airborne, rolling over twice, coming to rest on its roof.
Coffta, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the car, David Brown, 64, of Cheektowaga, is charged with vehicular manslaughter and DWI.
