RUSTON, La. (KTVE/KARD) — Last week, a Ruston family was involved in a fatal crash on Independence Day in Idaho, killing a mother and son and injuring the father and eight-month-old daughter, and the community has rallied to help show support for the family.

Dr. Daniel Huey, 41, and his wife, 38-year-old Beth Huey, along with their two children, ages 8 months and nearly 2 years-old, were traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 93 on a tandem bicycle when they were struck by a vehicle. 

Maybe just before mile 10 into our ride and all of a sudden I heard a bang sound and next thing I know I was flying through the air and rolling on the pavement and then I realized we had been struck by something.
