R.I.P. "dudezinc13"

I was reading the news and found out that a local car enthusiast, along with two others, were killed by a drunk driver this weekend. He was also a member on here that went by "dudezInc13".

My condolences go out to the Zamarripa family and the other families who lost their loved ones.

first story:

Updated story:

SAN ANTONIO -- A San Antonio couple is going through the pain of losing a second son to a suspected drunk driver.

Christi Zamarripa's oldest son, 23-year-old Petey Zamarripa, was killed when police say a drunk driver crashed into his car this past weekend.

Christi and her husband Pedro told News 4 WOAI Petey had a passion for car shows and the trophies to prove it. Petey was driving home from a birthday party early Sunday morning with his fiancée and two friends when a drunk driver's vehicle jumped the median and crashed into his Ford Focus on Military Drive near South Flores. Christi remembers the last thing she and her husband said to their son.

"We told him be careful," Christi said.

The crash killed three people traveling inside Petey's car, including Petey. He died in the same horrific way his 14-year-old brother Ricky did just four years ago. He was killed by a young person who was drunk and behind the wheel. Christi describes her grief as a déjà vu nightmare.

"Both our babies are gone. I only had two boys, thinking that was enough to keep my heart full," explained Christi. "And now, they're both gone."

Christy says she's left with just one tiny piece of hope that she feels would make her sons smile.

"I can say now, 'Well he's with his brother.'"

Petey's fiance, Lisa Molina, was the only survivor from inside the car. Her family told News 4 WOAI she is at Brooke Army Medical Center. She suffered a broken neck, two broken legs, a broken arm, and lacerations to her face.
