Johnstown Funeral Accident

A somber procession traveled through Cambria County on Sunday following memorial services for Collin and Feya Ferguson.

The siblings died as a result of a house fire along Clover Street in the Moxham neighborhood of Johnstown two weeks ago.

During the procession, three people were transported to Conemaugh Hospital following a multi-vehicle crash along Route 56, according to 911 dispatchers.

Dispatchers say the crash occurred around 4 p.m. near the Bedford Street exit.

Two of the individuals who were injured were part of a funeral procession for the two children, funeral home staff confirmed to 6 News.

The condition of those injured is unknown at this time, and our 6 News crew says the crash scene has since been cleared.

We spoke with Collin’s mom, Alexis Makin, who is grieving his loss.

“No parent should lose a kid before them. It’s not fair,” she said.

Alexis said her 5-year-old son loved the outdoors, dinosaurs, and firetrucks.

“He was the type of kid that wanted to help anybody in any way he could,” she said.

Collin is still helping people today.

Alexis said his organ donations saved the lives of at least three children.

“He will live on, and that’s what he would’ve wanted,” she said.

The siblings’ father wrote about his sadness of losing Feya writing on their GoFundMe page “She was only 4 years old. We are heartbroken right now.”

The Johnstown Fire Chief tells us the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Alexis is now preaching about fire prevention.

“I just really wish people would actually sit down with their family and their kids and have a plan of action — and practice with their kid — so this doesn’t happen to anybody else,” she said.

Now Feya and Collin will play together for eternity.

“You never realize what you have until it’s gone, and then it’s not there anymore,”
