RADCLIFF, KY (WAVE) – A tattoo shop is gathering support to help the family of a teenager who is continuing to recover from a crash that killed a 17-year-old in Hardin County.

Mickayla Harig, 18, was in the vehicle with Brianna Taylor, 17, who was driving north on Patriot Parkway when two men in a red truck heading east on Deckard School Road slammed into her red Mustang on June 29, killing Taylor.

Following the crash, IA Studios in Radcliff drew a series of tattoos to represent Harig’s spirit.

The designs read “#TeamHarig" and feature different items like a fishing pole.

All the money from the tattoos are being donated to Harig's family. Since Saturday, the shop had already raised more than $800.
