Community remembers drunk driving accident

A candlelight vigil memorializing the two-year anniversary of the death of two Wisconsin women who died in a drunk driving accident was held Thursday night. In 2008, two 18-year-olds, Talhia Heroux and Ashley Knetzger, were struck by a driver on Oneida Street as they were leaving work at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant. The operator of the vehicle, Anrietta Geske, was speeding and driving drunk when she hit the two women. She was sentenced to 80 years in prison.

Friends and family gathered at the site of the accident this week at the intersection of Oneida Street and Willard Street. The parents of the girls expressed their appreciation of the support that is still coming from the community. They also said that they hope that their experience will make some kind of a difference for someone else.

Our deepest condolences go out to all the family and friends of those involved in this tragic accident two years ago.
