BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Friends and family of the young woman critically injured in a crash on the Popp's Ferry Bridge are coming together to raise money for her. 

Bethanie Jones was critically injured when she was hit by a drunk driver on June 30. Jones remains in the intensive care unit in a Mobile hospital after undergoing brain surgery after a massive stroke and surgeries for her leg and ankle. 

Classmates plan to hold a fundraiser Monday night from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Pop's Pizzeria in Biloxi. Friends say they plan to donate all the proceeds to the GoFundMe account that has already been set up for Bethanie.
