SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Singer-songwriter Alessa Cara joined Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson this week in sending condolences to the family of the 12-year-old girl and her mother killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 805.

Answering a Twitter message from Angelo Pizarro, whose sister, Aryana, and mother, Aileen, were killed in the I-805 crash, Cara told him to check for a private message.

Cara added, "I'm so sorry. All my love to you and your family."

The original tweet from Angelo asked users to help gain attention for a message from Cara to his sister after Johnson had done the same for his mother last week.

Johnson sent the family a private message, thanking Aileen for her "all the love and being such a huge fan."

The mother and daughter died on Aug. 23 after a vehicle traveling southbound in the northbound I-805 HOV lane crashed head-on.

Angelo has set up a GoFundMe page to support the family, that has since raised more than $60,000. The family plans to use the money for funeral expenses, to pay off the mother's remaining expenses, and health costs for her sons' asthma.

They'll be making donations to the American Lung Association, Ronald McDonald House, and the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The family is planning a memorial service for mom and sister on Saturday, Sept. 8 at The Rock Church on El Cajon Blvd.
