The Middle Township community in Cape May County continues to be in mourning for a young girl who tragically lost her life in a single-car traffic accident last week.

Sadie Faulkner, 17, was an incoming senior at Middle Township High School.

According to Middle Township Police, Faulkner lost her life early Thursday morning on Route 47 when she lost control of her car and it went off the road, striking a pole and two trees.

Two online fundraisers have been established in Sadie's memory to cover funeral and service expenses. A GoFundMe page organized by Rosalia Daddi has already raised over $23,000 - far more than the initial goal of $15,000.

Another GoFundMe page, started by Caroline Ranoia has raised more than $3,700.

According to an online obituary, Sadie Faulkner's funeral is planned for Wednesday in Cape May.
