Vigil Held On Anniversary Of Fatal Raleigh Crash

— An emotional tribute was held Monday evening to mark the lives lost last year after a wreck that took the lives of six good samaritans.

"We just want to, I guess, let people know what drinking and driving can do to somebody. Even though this is a year later, it feels like he just died. It's like we're reliving this all over again today," Shauna Clemons said.

Clemons' uncle was one of six people killed when a driver crashed his van into a group of people at the intersection of Nowell and Chapel Hill roads.

The group had stopped to help a victim of an earlier wreck when they were struck.

The driver, Larry Veeder, is serving a sentence of up to 11 years in jail.
