WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Two local Pizza Hut restaurants are raising money Friday for the family of a 17-year-old Valley Center student who was killed in a crash last weekend.

Diana Lopez was killed Sunday morning on Interstate 135 at Harry Street. She was the passenger in a vehicle that rolled after the driver lost control and struck a concrete wall.

Lopez, a junior at Valley Center High School, worked part-time at the Pizza Hut in Park City. To help Lopez's family with funeral expenses, the Pizza Huts in Park City and Valley Center will donate 20 percent of Friday's sales. All you need to do is mention Lopez's family when ordering.

An online fund has also been established.
