Pinay nursing student dies in Indiana car crash

A 20-year old Filipina lost her life in a two car crash on I-65 in Gary, Indiana.

Authorities say Samantha Salvador from Hoffman Estates, Illinois, was one of three passengers in a green Honda Civic being driven by Rose Katcher past 6:00am last Thursday.

They were reportedly traveling north on 1-65 last week when Katcher attempted to take a left turn onto US-20, but ended up striking a median and a Chevrolet Malibu that was heading south on I-65.

Kacher and the driver of the Malibu sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The other two unnamed passengers in the Civic were seriously injured.

Salvador, who was from Bacolod City, Philippines – was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Salvador’s family say it’s been especially tough for them since they also lost her grandfather, the same week that their beloved daughter died.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Salvador’s family with funeral expenses. So far, the campaign has reached $18,155 of its $4,000 goal.
