LANCASTER – An online fundraiser has been set up to help out the family of a five-year-old boy killed in a traffic crash in east Lancaster last week.
Dorian Ramcharam was riding in the backseat of a Chrysler Concorde that was struck by a motorcycle around 8:46 p.m., Thursday, May 15, on Avenue K at 15th Street East.
Sheriff’s officials said the motorcycle was eastbound on Avenue K when the westbound Chrysler Concorde made a left turn in front of the motorcycle. Witnesses at the crash site said both vehicles had a yellow light.
The motorcycle struck the car’s right rear passenger door where Dorian was sitting, and the 5-year-old took the full force of the collision, Sheriff’s officials said.
Dorian died at the hospital a short time later.
