International Falls, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The family of a young International Falls couple, killed in a car accident earlier this month, have set up a memorial fund.

Riley and Tasha Burnell were killed in a head on collision on Highway 53, just south of International Falls, on September 6th.

Riley was a police officer and Tasha was a school teacher.
Because of their involvement in the community, the family hopes the fund can be used to give back to the community. They hope to donate the money to the building of a community water park in International Falls.

The memorial fund has been set up through the True Star Federal Credit Union in International Falls.

Donations can be sent to:
