A memorial fund is being set for one of the victims in Friday's deadly air races crash at the Reno-Stead Airport.
45-year-old John Craik of Gardnerville was one of 11 victims total who died when pilot Jimmy Leeward crashed his modified WWII-era P-51 Mustang dubbed the ‘Galloping Ghost' nose-first into a section of VIP box seats.
74-year-old Leeward also died.
To help Craik's family, just go to any US Bank branch and ask for the 'Craik Benefit Account' - #153754802939.
People can also drop off checks at the Alpine County Health & Human Services building at 75 Diamond Valley Road, Woodford, California – near Markleeville
Anyone needing additional support or with questions regarding the incident at Friday's air races are encouraged to call 211 from within Nevada, or 775.784.8090 from outside the state.
Attendees who left personal effects in the grandstand area of the air races can call 775.972.6663 for more information on reclaiming that property. Property and effects located in the box seating area near the incident are still being processed. Further information will been released when those items are available to be reclaimed.
