      An online fundraiser has been set up to help the family of a woman killed in a freak accident in Ithaca last week.

      27-year-old Amanda Bush was working as a bartender at Simeon' restaurant on Friday when a tractor trailer slammed into the building, killing Bush and injuring several others.

      She leaves behind a 14-month-old daughter.

      Police say the tractor trailer had faulty breaks. The truck driver was ticketed for having an inadequate braking system and driving an over-length vehicle.
