A trust fund has been created for the daughter of a man who died in a car accident late Thursday.
Alejandro (Alex) Apodaca, 34, died when the car he was driving hit a tree in Spokane Valley.
An online fund has been created to benefit his daughter, Sierra Apodaca. It can be found at http://www.gofundme.com/alexapodaca.
A fund has also been established at Washington Trust Bank branches under the name The Sierra Apodaca Benevolent Fund. Donations can be mailed to that fund care of Extant Realty, 12904 E. Nora Ave., Spokane Valley, WA 99216.
Apodaca was driving a Nissan Altima south on Bowdish Road near 17th Avenue and left the street, hitting the tree around 11:55 p.m. Thursday, Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Gregory said. When medics arrived, Apodaca, the lone occupant, was unresponsive and declared dead at the scene. Gregory said preliminary indications point to speed as a factor in the accident.
