GDOT expected to re-open Ga 17

Posted: Updated:
EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Crews will be back out on Georgia 17 in Marlow Monday trying to fix the road after a fatal crash that killed three siblings last Thursday afternoon. 

While GDOT is expecting to re-open the road later Monday, family and friends of the three brothers are still trying to deal with the devastating loss. The tragic death of Wesley and Garrett Mulligan, and their 3-year-old brother Eli Hickox, has left a huge hole in the hearts of the people who loved them.

There have been multiple funds set up to help the family pay for funeral costs; there was even a fund-raiser held in Garden City on Sunday.

Thanks to donations, the family has raised more than $46,000 so far, around $3,000 away from their $50,000 goal. Most of the money was donated through gofundme.com.

The money will be used to pay for funeral cost for the boys.
