MIDLAND - Riley's Bar and Grill sold barbecue plates on Saturday to help a family involved in a deadly accident.

For just $15, restaurant patrons got ribs, sausage and sides.

It's all to help the family of seven year old Zachery Blake.

He died in an accident that happened on Interstate 20 in Ector County.

His 12-year-old sister, Brianna, was placed into a medically induced coma and had to be airlifted to a Lubbock hospital in critical condition.

Zachery's 14-year-old brother, Nathan, suffered several broken bones and a collapsed lung.

The accident hits close to home for the restaurant.

“Actually they have been a part of our lives for quite a few years now. Just come to know them best we could,” Lee Salinas with Riley's Bar and Grill, said.

Next Saturday, the Odessa Outdoor Gun Range is hosting a trap shooting event.

Entry fee is $20 per person and there will be prizes for the top three winners.

Proceeds will go to the family.

Fundraising accounts have also been set up for the three young children.
