Family and friends gather to remember crash victim

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Family and friends came together to remember Latroy Adger, the husband and father who died in a car accident early Mother's Day morning.

Loved ones gathered for a candlelight vigil at New Mexico Street Friday night. Adger was a passenger in the car that lost control and crashed. His wife explains the kind of legacy Latroy left.

"He's going to leave a great legacy, he taught people how to be a great father, put their family first, drop guns, get a job, and do the right thing with your life because you never know...," said wife Altoria Adger.

Investigators say the driver was traveling south on Abercorn at a high rate of speed when he lost control. The SUV crossed through the median, taking out shrubs and a metal light pole before crashing into a large tree on the corner of East 49th Street.
