CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The family of a 26-year-old Cleveland woman who was killed in an accident on I-71 Saturday morning has started an online fund raising account to help raise money for her funeral.

Amanda Lingenfelter was described by the organizer to have a "beautiful spirit" and that she will always be remembered as a loving mother.

"This was so unexpected, so we are asking for any help that anyone can give," the account description reads.

Cleveland police say the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-71, near the W. 130th Street exit. Lingenfelter was struck by a car and died at the scene.
