Nova Scotians are rallying behind a family after a crash claimed the life of an 18-year-old over the weekend.

A Beaver Bank teen was killed in a two-vehicle collision in Upper Big Tracadie on Saturday morning.

Police have not released his name, but a GoFundMe has been launched to help the family of Zachery Hendsbee.

“This GoFundMe page has been set up to support Zach’s family during this difficult time,” organizer Tina Clinton says in a post. “If you know Zach’s parents, Shana and Darcy, you know that they are shirt off their back kind of people. Shana and Darcy have given so much time to the community, it’s time to come together to support them.”

Hendsbee is remembered as someone who could light up any room with his smile and positive energy.

He passed away just shy of his 19th birthday.

“Zach was an athlete and a car enthusiast,” the GoFundMe says. “He marched to the beat of his own drum. Zach could light up any room with his smile and his positive energy. He touched the lives of many people in his short time here on earth.”

The fundraising goal is $25,000.
