That's according to information from a GoFundMe page set up to help his family. The page said that Chris Lucia, 44, had two children with Wendy Lucia, Chris Jr. and Nina. He also has three other children, Joe, Lily, and Nate.

The goal of the fundraiser is to pay for the funeral and ease the pain of other costs since his death. Lucia had been heading north on I-35 near Scanlon, when his truck went off the road and into the river. That was early Friday morning, during the season's first winter storm.
