LAS VEGAS (AP) — A woman who lost four children, two stepsons and her younger brother in a metro Las Vegas crash that killed nine people last weekend has disabled her GoFundMe page after raising over $300,000 for funeral costs.

An update added Wednesday by Erlinda Zacarias said she had reached her goal and thanked contributors for being there in her time of need.

The seven relatives lived with Zacarias and her husband, Jesus Mejia-Santana.

The relatives were killed Saturday when their minivan was hit by a vehicle that police said ran a red light.

The man driving the other vehicle and a man who was his passenger also were killed.
