ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The family of a New York-born South Pacific anthropologist killed in a crash on an upstate road has started an online fundraising campaign for the woman’s three grandsons who were injured in the accident.

Nearly $16,000 has been raised on the giveforward.com website on the behalf of Nancy Sullivan’s grandsons, ages 5, 8 and 10. Donations will be used to pay for their medical costs.

The 57-year-old Westchester native was killed and the boys suffered severe injuries when her rental SUV crashed on the Taconic State Parkway in Dutchess County on July 16. The boys’ 43-year-old nanny also was injured.

The 8-year-old is expected to be released from a Westchester hospital Monday. His brothers remain in critical condition.

Sullivan was a prominent anthropologist in Papua New Guinea, where she lived for the past 24 years.
