This young woman’s husband and unborn son were killed after their car was struck by a drunk driver. Rather than spreading anger about the tragic incident, she’s raising awareness.

On August 2, Kristian Nicole Guerrero’s life changed forever when a drunk driver  – identified as 21-year-old Shana Lee Elliott – crossed the center lane on Highway 21 in San Marcos, Texas, and ran into her vehicle head-on, according to KXAN.com. Guerrero’s husband, Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, who was in the passenger seat, was killed in the crash.

Guerrero, a 24-year-old expecting mom, was hospitalized with a brain bleed. Two days later, she was induced and delivered her 19-week stillborn son, who she named Fabian James, after his dad.

Now, over a month since the tragic incident, Guerrero is sharing her heartbreaking story on social media with the hopes to shed some light on drunk driving.

“This is me finally being able to hold my son. This is what being in an induced labor for almost 24 hrs after surviving a car crash that killed my husband and my son looks like,” Guerrero posted on her social media platforms earlier this week.

“All because someone thought it was okay to get wasted and drive. It’s not okay,” she added.

In the post, Guerrero emphasized the importance of making mature decisions when drinking, stating that asking for a ride or giving your car keys to someone else are not signs of weakness.

“I could’ve died on August 2, but God had other plans,” she wrote.

“I’m left behind to fight this fight for my husband and my son. And I will continue to spread awareness and share this story until the day I die in hopes it prevents anyone else from feeling the pain I walk around with every day. I refuse to let my husband and my son’s deaths be in vain.”

KXAN reports that “Elliott is currently in the Hays County Jail charged with two counts of intoxicated manslaughter and one count of intoxicated assault.” Her bond amount totals $385,000.

Kick Your Weekend Off Right With Café Tacvba’s First New Song In 4 Years

This is the band’s first new song in four years.

The argument can–and should–be made that Café Tacvba is the greatest Latin American rock band of all time. One such reason why they more than deserve that distinction is that despite being older than a lot of you (they formed in 1989), the band is constantly reinventing their sound. They’re not in the habit of putting out the same recycled songs over and over, which is more than you can say for their counterparts.

That willingness to try something fresh is certainly present in “Un Par De Lugares,” the group’s first single in more than four years. The song is synthy and upbeat, which makes sense given that it was mixed by Mick Guzauki, who’s worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince and Daft Punk.

And what’s the tune about?

“This is a song that talks about the feeling of absence and how we go to a pair of places–our mind and our heart– to recover the thoughts and feelings that help us alleviate the pain,” lead vocalist Rubén Albarrán said in a statement.

Dope.
