The driver of the vehicle, his on again off again girlfriend and the mother of his child lay not to far from Tony's body. Visible intoxicated but still breathing she survived. She was the driver. Due to drinking and driving she killed my brother, the father of her son. She was going over 100 miles an hour on the high way and lost control of the car, throwing my brother from the vehicle. The landing ruptered his aorta, killing him instantly. She suffered many injuries and was unable to attend the funeral. this event has flipped my family upside down. The girl is now a single parent to my nephew and is facing criminal charges. our lives will never be the same and my younger brother who died at 23 will be forever missed. his son is growing up without his father. he has the memories that we costantly share with him. he misses his dad. it breaks my heart. the word down below to enter for the submition of this is cobalt, which is the type of car she was driving.
