Coworkers of a woman who was killed in a crash on Route 222 in Berks County earlier this week are coming together to help her family.
Lauren Boyer left behind a husband and teenaged daughter when she lost her life in a chain-reaction pileup in Maidencreek Township early Monday morning.
Boyer, 45, of Richmond Township, was employed by Bob Fisher Chevrolet in Muhlenberg Township. Her co-workers are still in shock by what happened.
"It was not like her to not call us, not let us know what was going on, phone's dead. She's sick. Everybody just trying to make it be okay, but it wasn't," said Anita Swartz, a co-worker and close friend of Boyer's.
"Things stopped. Couple of the guys couldn't be here anymore. We'd didn't have anything to say. Just stood around like zombies," said T.J. Forrer, a technician at the dealership. "She was like our work mom. She'd keep us in line."
"She'd always ask how we were doing, if we were okay. Always concerned about everybody," said Kevin McCann, another technician.
The people Boyer worked with at the dealership are organizing a car show in her memory.
The show will take place Sat., Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the old Hoover Chevrolet dealership on East Penn Avenue in Wernersville. The donation is $20 for each car entered in the show, with all proceeds going to Boyer's husband and daughter.
"She'd gave so much to us, we just want to try and be there for her," said Swartz.
For more information about the car show and how you can make a donation to the Boyer family, you can contact Bob Fisher Chevrolet at 610-921-0261.
