$4000 raised to in honor of 16-year-old who died in ATV accident

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Tucker Stringfield was many things: a baseball player, a duck hunter, a jokester and a good friend.

At 16-years-old, Tucker lost his life this weekend in an ATV accident, surrounded by his friends. 

Friday night, Tucker’s friends and family surrounded together in Bowling Green near the WKU Learning Center for a Trucks for a Tuck event.

People raised about $4000 for the family, who turned it all down. The family will instead send the money to the Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky Buddy House, in honor of Tuck’s Brother Todd who has down syndrome, and the Warren East High School Baseball program that Tucker played in. 

People can also buy Hoodies for Tuck. The money for that will also go to the Buddy House in Honor of Tucker.
