Family remembers victim of fatal crash on one year anniversary

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

One year after her death, a Savannah woman's family is keeping her memory alive.

Theresa Moultrie was killed over the Valentine's Day weekend last year when she was hit by an SUV.

The family has kept up a memorial at the intersection of Bay Street and Tuten Avenue. And though being there brings back difficult memories for them, they gathered at the memorial Monday night in Moultrie's honor.
 
The 56-year-old was trying to cross Bay Street on her bicycle when she rode in front of an SUV on February 15, 2015. The driver was a 32-year-old man from Rincon.

Now, a year later, friends and family members brought flowers and prayed together at that intersection. Moultrie's son says this first anniversary is a tough one, and that for him, Valentine's Day will never be the same again.

"Yeah, I miss my mom a whole lot, a whole lot,” said Twan Simmons, Moultrie’s son. “Like I said, I'm an only child, so it's real, real, real hard for me."
 
"Miss Theresa was a great woman, she was a beautiful person inside and out...to know her is to love her. She was a terrific mother, an awesome grandmother, a wonderful daughter. Everyone loved her that came in contact with her,” said Kimberly White, the mother of Moultrie’s granddaughter.

The family is still navigating the legal process from this accident and are awaiting a court date.

They plan to hold a vigil on each Valentine's Day for years to come to keep her memory alive.
