Sarah Hyland has some tragic news to pass along.
The Modern Family star's 14-year old cousin, Trevor Canaday, was killed in a drunk driving accident on Saturday.
In a screen capture taken from the GoFundMe page, Hyland wrote the following:
"This is my 14 year old cousin Trevor. Yesterday, he was killed by a drunk driver. My uncle is still in the hospital in need of more surgeries."
The GoFundMe page was set up by Trevor's mothers and aunts and it explains what transpired with Travor and his dad in Nebraska over the weekend.
On Saturday 12/1 Trevor and his dad were driving to a show choir event and were involved in a serious car accident due to a drunk driver.
His dad, Bryan, is recovering physically, but sadly Trevor has gained his wings and is singing and playing some crazy football in heaven.
We are looking to help his mom, Becky, with funeral and hospital expenses in any way we can! We hope to have the funeral entirely covered and then will move forward with covering medical expenses from keeping Trevor stable and from dads surgery’s and rest at the hospital (UNMC).
We will be getting the money to Mom (Becky) as soon as possible with the help of all of you by her being the beneficiary and depositing money into her account to relieve her worries as much as we can.
Trevor was a funny, smart, innovative, athletic, goofy kid and he was so loved. His memory will live on in many ways.
Please help us do this for the family now to help ease their suffering away from money to focus on healing emotionally. Thank you.

And here is a picture of Trevor with his immediate family:
Hyland's Modern Family co-star, Ariel Winter, shared her friend's screenshot about her cousin and encouraged her followers to donate.
Both of Hyland and Winter's Instagram stories said that the man allegedly driving the other vehicle had two previous DUIs on his record.
Hyland wrote of another photo, the man "hit my Uncle's car so fast my cousin (who was wearing a seatbelt) was ejected from the car."
Nolan Gould, who plays the brother of Winter and Hyland's characters on their ABC sitcom, has also donated to the GoFundMe page and posted the link to his respective social media followers.
We send our condolences to the family of Sarah Hyland.
We can't imagine what they must be going through right now.
May Trevor Canaday rest in peace.
