Three American tourists died when their car collided with a truck in Scotland.

Jared Bastion, 45, and his mother Mary-Lou Mauch, 75, died at the scene of the August 10 horror crash.

Jared’s sister, Kathryn Bastion-Strong, 46, was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition.

She was pronounced dead four days later.

The family had been traveling on the A9 near Ralia, south of Newtonmore in the Highlands, when the collision occurred.

Distraught friends have since launched GoFundMe to support Jared, Kathryn and Mary-Lou’s family.

$12,000 (£10,000) has already been raised from 98 donors.

The GoFundMe page states: “Jared was a devoted father who loved his boys. He was a true friend to many, with a kind, generous heart and a gentle spirit. He also had a love for music, mushroom picking, and fine dining.

“Jared had a lot more to live for and was taken from us way too soon.

“While all who loved him will feel this significant and profound loss, we hope this will help ease some of the financial burdens so his boys and their mother can focus on grief and healing during this challenging time. “

The family had recently enjoyed a visit to the Isle of Skye as part of their Scottish holiday.

Jared and Mary-Lou had posed for a photo together on the island and smiled in what would be their last photo.
