    5-year-old girl and her mother hit by SUV in Worcester

An online fundraiser has been set up to benefit the family of a 5-year-old girl who suffered serious injuries after she and her mother were hit by an SUV last week in Worcester.

The girl, identified as Candice Asare-Yeboah, was in critical condition after last Monday’s accident near 91 Stafford St. Her mother, Asha Nyarki Asare, was also seriously injured.

The two were headed for hair accessories, according to the fundraiser.

The mother has a serious right leg injury, the fundraiser said. The 5-year-old would still be on life support.

The mother works as an LPN and raises two children.

“Asha had fractures in her right leg and Candice…nothing to describe, it was really awful,” Simon Yeboah, Asha’s husband and Candice’s father, told 7News. “All we ask for is prayers, it’s hard.”

“It’s a nightmare for all mothers except my sister Asha has double that, not only is she dealing with her own wounds but she also has the burden of not knowing what the future holds for her daughter on his shoulder,” Asha’s sister Nyarki Asare said. wrote on the fundraising page. “These are tough times and no one should go through this and have financial worries on the side.”

As of Monday morning, the fundraiser had raised $1,830 with a stated goal of $5,000.
