NASHVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A fund has been established to benefit a 7-year-old southern Illinois girl who survived a Kentucky plane crash that killed her parents, a sister and a cousin.

Sailor Gutzler walked roughly a mile to a house for help after managing to escape the wreckage of the plane that crashed Friday.

Federal aviation officials are investigating what caused the crash that killed Marty Gutzler, wife Kim Gutzler, their 9-year-old daughter, Piper Gutzler, and a cousin of the girls, 14-year-old Sierra Wilder.

A spokesman for the family, Kent Plotner, says donations to Sailor Gutzler’s behalf are being accepted on the website www.sailorgutzlerfund.com
