The Marco Island community has raised almost $16,000 to help one of its own recover from a severe car accident that happened last month.

According to the Marco Island Police Department, Thu Hang Le's vehicle was so damaged in the crash, first responders had to use special equipment to extract her.

Thu Hang Le, who works at both Da Vinci’s and Mango’s Dockside Bistro, was driving northbound on Collier Boulevard on Feb. 17 when a vehicle driving the wrong way collided with her. Le sustained substantial injuries and was transported to Naples Community Hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was unharmed.

According to a report from the Marco Island Police Department, the driver of the other vehicle was charged with the following: driving while under the influence; driving while under the influence with property damage; driving under the influence with serious bodily harm; and driving with no valid driving license.

One of Le’s friends has established a GoFundMe to help Le with her extensive medical bills. To donate, visit: gofundme.com/help-timi.
