Taylor Swift donates funds to help car crash family with medical bills

Singer Taylor Swift has reportedly donated $15,000 to help a Texas family cover their hospital bills following a car crash.

Volunteer firefighter Aaron Van Riper responded to an emergency call last Saturday (06Jun15) to assist with a car accident, and upon arriving at the scene, he discovered the victims were his own family members.


The firefighter's son has been released from the hospital, but his wife remains at the medical facility and a GoFundMe.com campaign has been set up to help the family with their rising medical bills.


According to Billboard.com, the Shake It Off hitmaker left the hefty donation and simply signed it "Taylor Swift".
