BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A nonprofit foundation started by Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is donating $93,000 to an Alabama girls home. That should cover funeral expenses for eight children killed in a horrific interstate crash in June.
The Tua Foundation announced the donation to the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch on Thursday. It says the money also would pay for counseling for ranch residents who lost loved ones in the wreck.
The children were in a van that was caught in a chain-reaction crash involving two tractor-trailers. The pileup was the most devastating blow from a tropical depression that unleashed flash floods and tornadoes in Alabama.
