The Shepard community, friends and family of Cassie Hense have started an online fund to help offset funeral costs for the teen.

The group has set a fundraising goal of $10,000. 

Hense, 17, died Sunday when she apparently lost control of her car while headed south on Wolf Road in Indian Head Park, Sun-Times Media reports. It appeared Hense was attempting to pass a vehicle when another vehicle in the northbound lane approached, according to the report.
