"A drunk driver speeding down a two-lane highway at 85+ mph in the wrong lane around a blind corner destroyed my family," writes Zach Kincaid.

If you want to know what that destruction looks like, Kincaid makes it plain to see. The father of four posted a series of photos on Facebook from the Sept. 26 funeral of wife Krystil Kincaid and his unborn daughter, who was at 36 weeks gestation and was to be named Avalynn Onix, reports the Sacramento Bee.

They were killed in Hemet, Calif., in September when 28-year-old pro boxer Marcos Forestal, who was allegedly drunk, crashed his BMW head-on into Krystil Kincaid's minivan. KTLA reports Zach Kincaid was on the phone with his wife as the crash happened and heard her scream.

"I put those pictures up so everyone can see the nightmare that I'm living," he tells the Daily Mail.

The photos show Zach Kincaid and his children cradling the lifeless baby, reports People. Subsequent ones show Zach lowering the lid on his 29-year-old wife's casket; the child is in her arms. In the accompanying caption, he rails against state law, which will see Forestal get a maximum sentence of 10 years if convicted.

"The state of California doesn't think there was intent, but I know driving recklessly in that manner, he didn't intend anything good.... my daughter's due date was October 9th, a 36 week old fully developed baby isnt [sic] considered a person in the state of California. How do I explain to my children this injustice." petition seeking to change those laws has garnered 106,000 signatures, and a GoFundMe campaign in support of the family has raised $53,000. (This aspiring model's fatal crash has taken a sinister turn.)
