Hundreds of Londoners are expected to attend a vigil on Wednesday night in honour of a young girl killed in a tragic crash at Costco.

Six-year-old Addison Hall died in hospital on the weekend after she was hit by a car that reversed into the front entrance of the store on Wellington Rd. S on Friday. Her mother, Danah McKinnon-Bozak, is listed in fair condition in hospital; she was eight months pregnant at the time of the crash. Addison’s sister Miah, 3, and her baby sister –delivered by emergency C-section– are both in critical condition.

The vigil is planned for 8pm at Greenway Park, and organizers will have candles available but you’re encouraged to bring your own. They ask that the flame is covered. Donations for the family will also be taken.

Two other fundraisers to support the family are also accepting donations. A GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the young girl’s funeral has raised almost $50,000.

Costco is now offering to match donations made to the family at the check-out in both London locations. Costco Wholesale Corporate has committed to matching those donations up to $50,000. You do not have to be a Costco member to leave a donation.

On Sunday Pierre Riel, the senior vice president and general manager of Costco for Eastern Ontario, released the following statement on Addison’s death:

“We are very saddened by the news of Addison’s passing and wish to express our deepest condolences to the family. Our thoughts are with the family as well as the others injured. We hope for their speedy recovery. At this time we would also like to express our thanks to our employees, members, emergency responders, police, and medical teams for their commitment.”

London police say the investigation into the crash is still ongoing. No charges have been laid.
