The other driver, Reginald Stubbs, 57, survived the crash, but Kennedy Segars was pronounced dead Monday.
“I question that all the time. Why’d you have to take her?” Marvin Segars said.
Witnesses described the wreck as a horrific scene involving at least three other cars.
"By the time he's (Stubbs) coming to, he's waking, he's realizing, like, 'I know I just messed up,'" witness Brandon Parker told WSB.
Parker said he was home around 8 p.m. and rushed to pull Kennedy Segars out of her car as smoke came out of it.
“I see she’s breathing, so I’m telling everybody we gotta get her out,” Parker said.
Paramedics rushed her to the hospital, but her brain injuries were too severe.
Her family believes the accused drunken driver made a choice that cannot be forgiven.
"We want him to stay behind bars forever. He took a life, so his freedom should be taken as well,” Marvin Segars said.
Stubbs is due in court Friday for an arraignment on charges of vehicular homicide, DUI and others. A judge denied him bond Monday.
