1,600 burgers were set for a long line of people who wanted to help the families of the five teens who were involved in a crash many could not forget.

In this crash, Tuloso-Midway High School student Justin Franco lost his life.

Jalyn Thomas waited in line and is a cousin of 18-year-old Kendell Barber.

Barber was one of the teens inside the car of the crash.

Thomas says, her cousin has made much progress and the family is happy to have Barber home.

“This is a parent’s worst nightmare and none of us want to go through this and so we want to make sure these families have the support they need from us like we say we are TM strong,” says Leigh Anna Miller.

As others were released from the hospital one still remains.

Jacob Ramirez shares how his big brother Jevon Leal who was also in the car, is doing a lot better and is headed to Houston for more treatments.

“I get to see my big brother again, I get to see him, I get to talk to him, I get to spend time with him and I love it,” says Ramirez.
