A horrific car accident on Saturday, March 30th, claimed the life of a young child and ultimately led to the passing of the mother, leaving a family shattered and in desperate need of support. Naresh Babu Kamatham and his family were struck by tragedy after they were involved in a collision near the Woodburn area at Highway 211 and S Meridian Rd in Hubbard, Oregon.

The collision resulted in the tragic loss of five-year-old Hanika Kamatham and the critical injury of her mother, Geethanjali Kamatham, aged 32. Geethanjali succumbed to her injuries, leaving behind a devastated family and community. The family’s son, Braman, is currently undergoing surgery for a broken leg, while Naresh Kamatham himself survived the accident but sustained injuries including broken ribs and a fractured shoulder.

The Kamatham family’s journey that day was intended to celebrate Geethanjali’s birthday at the Tulip festival, but instead, it ended in tragedy, according to a GoFundMe account set up for the family.

Geethanjali had to be airlifted to Legacy Hospitals in Portland, where she fought for her life in the Intensive Care Unit. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, her injuries proved fatal, leaving the family grappling with immense grief and financial strain.

According to the GoFundMe, Naresh was the sole provider for the family, after Geetanjali lost her job recently.
