‘Modern Family’ Star Ariel Winter Donates to Sarah Hyland’s Family After Drunken Driver Kills Cousin

Ariel Winter is showing that the sisterly bond between her and “Modern Family” co-star Sarah Hyland is bigger than TV.

Over the weekend, Hyland’s cousin and uncle were involved in a serious car crash in Omaha, Nebraska. Her uncle, Bryan, is recovering in the hospital, but her 14-year-old cousin, Trevor, was killed.

Hyland lashed out at the alleged driver, who she claims had two prior DUI’s and allegedly tried to run from the scene of the accident. She called the driver a “murderer” and said he should “rot in hell.” Hyland also posted a GoFundMe to help raise money for her cousin’s funeral expenses.

So far, the highest donation is from Ariel Winter who gave $2,500. Hyland donated as well, kicking in $1,000 on her own behalf.

It also appears the girls’ co-star Sofía Vergara donated $1,000 under the handle, “S Ver.”

The money raised from the GoFundMe is expected to cover funeral costs and medical costs for Hyland’s uncle.
