    State police are responding to a crash involving an ice cream truck on Interstate 91 southbound in Hartford.

    A Go-Fund-Me page has been set up to help replace the truck of a beloved ice cream lady who totaled hers in an accident.

    The "Daisy The Ice Cream Lady" fundraising page has already raised over $23,000 of the needed $25,000 to help replace the truck of Daisy Gonzalez.

    Gonzalez was involved in a crash on Interstate 91 southbound in Hartford on July 5th. The truck rolled over into its side, leaving it beyond repair.
