Friends and strangers have rallied round to support a Coupar Angus mum and dad left devastated by the death of their “beautiful” daughter.
Harlow Edwards died after being struck by a car just yards from her home as she walked with her big sister Dionne, 17, and six-year-old brother Leon.
Her parents Sara and Steven are continuing a vigil at the bedsides of her two siblings, who remain in Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital following the accident.
Their conditions are still described as “serious”.
As the family attempts to come to terms with what has happened, friends who started a JustGiving page have thanked supporters for their “overwhelming generosity”.
Hundreds have already pledged financial support to help Harlow’s grieving mum and dad nurse Dionne and Leon back to health.
An initial £2,000 target was beaten within a matter of hours and a new £4,000 target was exceeded soon thereafter.
The JustGiving page’s total now stands at more than £7,100 and continues to rise by the hour.
Organiser Nadia Rice said: “We aim to support them financially so they can nurse their children back to health to try and relieve the financial strains while they try to get through this worry and grief.
“Any help would be most appreciative, big or small. Every little bit will help this family.”
Nadia described the generosity of those who have already pledged money as “overwhelming”.
She said: “We are so thankful for all the support for the family. This should help a lot.
“Thank-you to everyone who has already donated and to everyone still donating.”

Meanwhile, the findings of a police investigation into the cause of the accident, which took place on Forfar Road in Coupar Angus have been passed to the Crown Office.
The procurator fiscal must now decide whether charges will be brought in the case.
It is understood the three siblings were walking home when a car that had been involved in a collision careered into them with devastating consequences.
The car mounted the pavement to strike them.
