PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia woman who’s raising money in memory of her daughter and grandbaby killed by a fleeing driver says a mystery man made a major donation.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/2bcH8Mt ) Janice Brown-West has been selling trinkets and toys in the city’s Holmesburg section. She’s trying to raise money to take 20 children who lost their parents to an amusement park.

She hangs a picture of Latoya Smith and her toddler granddaughter Rimanee Camp by her stand. They were struck in 2009 by an out-of-control car fleeing a robbery.

Brown-West says last week, a man stopped by her folding table and asked her how much for the whole lot. He bought everything for $600 and told her grandson to pass the toys out to neighborhood kids.

She says after hugs and handshakes, her “stranger angel” continued on his way.
