Survivors of a deadly crash are calling out to the community asking citizens to be respectful of a makeshift memorial at the accident site. It honors the close friends they lost two years ago to a drunk driver.

Survivors of a deadly crash are calling out to the community asking citizens to be respectful of a makeshift memorial at the accident site. It honors the close friends they lost two years ago to a drunk driver.

The memorial at the intersection of Columbia Road and 17th Avenue in Grand Forks has been tampered with recently. Those who maintain the site want the tampering stopped. People say over the past two months, every time they put something up it's taken down again. The two girls I talked with today say it's a place for them to remember their friends, and brother. 24-year-old Celso Garza was charged with two counts of manslaughter and two counts of reckless endangerment along with driving under the influence and a slew of others. He was sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
