170,000 dollars were raised for the family of the polish driver who was murdered in the Berlin terror attack in a crowdfunding campaign. The driver, Lukasz Urban, was murdered during the Berlin terror attack when he apparently attempted to regain control of his truck that had been hijacked by the terrorist.

The campaign began on Tuesday by Dave Duncan, a British truck driver. “I started this with the intention of raising a few hundred pounds for the family from good hearted British truck drivers,” said Duncan, “Amazing generosity from everybody literally all around the world…incredible.”

Urban was found in the truck with bullet and stab wounds. Reports claim that the autopsy shows that he was still alive after he was stabbed and he probably attempted to seize the wheel.

The amount raised so far is 20 times the driver’s annual salary in Poland. Last Friday, the Polish Prime Minister announced that Urban’s family will receive a special pension and called the driver a “hero.”
