A young couple in Orange County was killed in a single-car crash this past weekend.

State police say 20-year-old Alexis Lewis, from Chester, and her 21-year-old boyfriend Holmes Shindon, from Montgomery, died Saturday morning.

Authorities say Shindon was driving his girlfriend to work when he crashed his car into a tree along Route 208 in Hamptonburgh.

A GoFundMe page has now been started to help Lewis' family.

Police say speed appears to be to blame.
