A fund has been established in honor of Haylee Burks at Regions Bank in Jemison.

Burks, a second grader at Jemison Elementary, was struck and killed by a car as she and her family were walking to their car after the Tuscaloosa Regional Air Show on March 31.

The driver of the vehicle, Danny Ray Smith, 64, was arrested by Northport P.D. and charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of the accident and two counts of first-degree assault.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Haylee’s name.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 7 at 11 a.m. from Jemison Baptist Church with Rev. Wayne Hughes, Rev. Steve Johnson and Rev. Billy Boatwright officiating.

Burial will follow in the Union Springs Baptist Church Cemetery in Randolph.
