Elijah Olivas, a 6th grade student at Tunnell Elementary School, was riding in the back seat of a 1995 Toyota Avalon when one of the other passengers attacked the driver.
“There was an altercation in the vehicle and Elijah was ejected from the vehicle and sustained a severed hand and massive injuries all over his body,” said Bendele.
The Olivas family held a fundraiser at the Santa Maria Eagles Hall. The Crowd was present at this event. The Crowd donated money to help the Olivas family pay for the medical expenses.
