WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - Donors have contributed more than $300,000 for a Wisconsin family of eight children who lost their father when a deer struck his van.

By Tuesday afternoon, more than 4,000 people had contributed to the Rogan family’s fundraising site.

Michael Rogan was driving his pregnant wife, Niki, and the children to the hospital for the birth of their eighth child last Friday when a deer struck their van windshield on a rural highway in Marathon County. The 42-year-old father was killed. Niki and the children, ages 2 to 15, suffered minor injuries.

All were taken to a hospital, where Michael Rogan was pronounced dead. His wife gave birth to a healthy boy hours later.

Relatives and friends say the contributions will allow Niki Rogan to continue to home-school her children.
