WAYNE, N.J. -- Medical bills are mounting for a Wayne boy in a medically-induced coma following a multi-car crash on Friday.

Friends and family established a GoFundMe page for Matthew Polifonte who is in critical condition at St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson.

Matthew and his twin sister, who turn 10 on Monday, were driving with their mother and three siblings on Ratzer Road to a lacrosse meet when a drunk driver hit them from behind while at a red light.

Matthew was knocked unconscious and needed emergency brain surgery.
