Two Metro families impacted by deadly car accidents this week are asking for help to honor their loved ones.

Family and friends of Shannon West, Jason Fields and Ruby Fields will hold a candlelight vigil at 11:30 p.m. at the site where they died. On Monday the family was killed when 22-year old Demetrius Price hit their car at the intersection of Reno and Rockwell.

Price now faces charges of manslaughter and driving under the influence.

The family says there is no life insurance to help cover the cost of funeral expenses, so they've set up a fund and are asking for help.

Another family who was also impacted by an accident caused by a driver under the influence is also appealing to the public.

Shavon McNack-Watley, her 9-year-old son, Stephen, and 6-year-old son, Saxton, were hit by a driver going the wrong way on the Kilpatrick Turnpike on Easter Sunday. Saxton died of massive injuries.

Shavon and Stephen are still recovering in the hospital. Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver, 44-year old Kelly Corn, was likely intoxicated. He has not yet been charged.
