ODESSA - The family and friends of three children killed in a recent car crash hosted a barbecue fundraiser on Saturday.

The family is trying to raise enough money to pay for funeral expenses and medical bills.

The three kids were killed a couple weeks ago when a truck slammed into their packed minivan from behind on Highway 385.

Along with the brisket sale, there was a balloon release filled with messages inside.

A candlelight vigil was also held.

We're told the family is very grateful for the community's support.
