Von Smith-Gross, the Aunt of Jacob Smith, His cousin and Grandmother, stopped by KETK to chat about a benefit for Smith.

The teen from Whitehouse was injured in an accident on April 12, 2014, along with another student and a teacher.

The group was headed back from a Career and Technical Education contest in Corpus Christi, when they were hit head-on in Wharton, Texas. The driver of the vehicle later died from her injuries.

New reports say alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

The benefit for Jacob Smith is scheduled for June 28, 2014 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.,at Pleasant Grove Baptist church in Tyler, Texas.

Money raised at the event will help the family with Jacob's medical bills.
