One year later, it still serves as a stark reminder of why not to drink and drive.

Michelle Briggs, 36, died last October after she was hurt in an alcohol-related crash. Monday evening family members gathered at the scene of the accident to remember their loved one, taken too soon.

The family placed a cross in Briggs's memory at the crash site last Christmas to remind people about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Briggs's vehicle was struck by a truck driven by 21-year-old Texas A&M University student Aaron Somers. Somers is awaiting trial for intoxication manslaughter.

Briggs was a mother of two and a graduate student at Prairie View A&M University.
