Trevor’s father, Bryan, sustained several injuries from the accident that killed his son. He is being treated at the Nebraska Medical Center, and doctors say he has a good chance of survival.


There will shortly be a counseling team available for staff and students of Millard South. There is also a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the Canaday family, especially Bryan’s medical bills and Trevor’s funeral expenses.

Sarah Hyland is used to the spotlight and social media comments, but regarding family matters, she refuses to take negative attitudes sitting down.

Following her posts about Trevor’s tragic death, Sarah received many negative comments on social media. Most of the comments pointed at her being a high-earning celebrity which makes people think that her family doesn't need donations.

She addressed this in an Instagram story where she urged people to stop doing this. Her post was done gracefully, and she encouraged her followers to support Trevor’s GoFundMe campaign. She also tweeted:

“You don’t know all the details. And how dare you attack when a beautiful life has been lost.”
