Earlier in the week, 21 News reported on a crash in Goshen Township that resulted in the death of a horse, with the cause of that accident revealed to be the driver texting while behind the wheel.

Now, a Mahoning County 4-H group is looking to raise funds to hopefully reduce distracted driving on local roadways.

21 News spoke with Greenford Silver Spurs Head Advisor, Sharon Vaughn who tells us the girl who was riding the horse, identified as Kahula at the time of the crash was none other than the Greenford Silver Spurs president.

Additionally, she's president of Junior Saddlehorse and co-captain of the Mahoning County Drill Team.

The victim was thrown from Kahula after the car struck her from behind and threw the victim off. Vaughn tells 21 News the victim suffered from a concussion, whiplash and bruises, but she's expected to be ok.

When asked about what sorts of measures will be taken to reduce distracted driving, Vaughn told us the goal is to put signage up in areas throughout Mahoning County that have heavy foot traffic from people and animals.

Eventually, Vaughn says she'd like to expand this signage to Trumbull and Columbiana Counties as well.

In order to raise the funds, the group will be holding events such as horse shows and bingo events with all proceeds going towards The Kahula Project. Additionally, t-shirts for The Kahula Project are in the works, but a price has not been set yet.

The Kahula Project will also be taking donations at the Canfield Fair this year.

Additionally, you can donate to The Kahula Project directly by mailing them to Greenford Silver Spurs c/o Sharon Vaughn 326 Union St. Columbiana OH 44408 or via PayPal.

You can also donate to the victim directly via Venmo @Melissa-Short-131 or CashApp $131missy.
