Family of men killed in crash share cautionary tale

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Family and friends of two Sioux City men who died in a high speed crash last week are cautioning others about the dangers of drinking and driving.   

Late Thursday night, 21-year-old Mark Sevier crashed into two parked cars on West 4th Street, sending his car up in flames, and killing himself and 20-year-old Caleb Springer.

Friends confirm the two had been drinking before they got behind the wheel and police say speed was also a factor.

Sunday night, during a candlelight vigil at the scene of the accident, those who knew the two, talked about how their decision didn't just affect two people, but all those who loved them.

"You never know when your last goodbye is. Mark just came over to my house last week, randomly, I came into my house and he was there. And, it was the first time seeing him in a long time, and you just never know when your last goodbye is," Sevier's sisters Tayla Schager said.

A friend of Springer's added that she hopes the crash serves as a wake-up call to others.
