Father shared photos of his dead wife and child after they were killed by a 'drunk driver'
The father-of-four claims to have published the pictures to raise awareness about the suffering that intoxicated and reckless drivers can cause to others. "I'm using it as a tool to protect everyone else. That's what this is about.”
We might have heard many times that an irresponsible behavior behind the wheel only brings tragedy and pain. But this seemingly obvious reflection becomes a nightmarish reality for those who are victims of this.

The grieving father and widower chose to share images from his late wife and unborn daughter’s funeral after going through the snapshots from the event and noticing that his youngest son approached his mother’s casket to take one last look at her lifeless body.
“I put those pictures up so everyone can see the nightmare that I'm living and my kids are living every day for the rest of our lives.”
-Zach Kincaid, Daily Mail, October 18, 2018.
In one of the images he shared on his Facebook account on September 27, 2018, Kincaid is seen carrying the dead body of his baby, who was going to be named Avalynn. He also let his other four children hold their unborn sister.
“How do I explain to my children this injustice. My children and I have never felt so disposable... Look at the devastation left behind that is my family and tell me it isn't time for change,” the 34-year-old wrote.
“Who will fight with me for change? Who will spread this like wild fire? Who will write their representatives and demand change?? We cannot as a society look the other way any longer. Driving drunk is intent,” he added.
As Kincaid told the news outlet, he was at the phone with his wife when he heard her screaming as she saw Forestal’s car coming her way at 85 mph down the wrong lane.
“We were talking, and then I just heard her scream. That scream only probably lasted about two seconds, but it replays in my mind very, very slowly,” he recalled.
“There was a quiver of almost like despair or impending doom - and then I heard the loudest crash. It sounded like the car was tumbling after that, but it didn't. And then there was just silence,” a tearful Kincaid said.
Kincaid was outraged to learn that Forestal was sentenced to just 10 years in prison after he declared himself innocent of the deaths of the mother and her unborn child, which Kincaid finds inadmissible.
“They're basically sending a message to my kids and me that my wife is just disposable. And that my daughter is just a clump of cells. To me that's not a world I want to live in. I don't think any of us should be comfortable living in that kind of a world,” he shared.
Zariah Jackson is a 17-year-old young woman that delivered a stillborn baby earlier this year, which left her facing an overwhelming feeling on loneliness, which made her turn to others in social media looking for empathy and support.
That is the reason why she shared pictures from her baby’s funeral showing the lifeless body of her stillborn inside the coffin, and while her friends and relatives understood it, she was criticized by strangers on Instagram.
She explained on Facebook that she didn't share her story so negative people can attack her for it, she only wanted to remind people that certain things happen in life that can either “make you or break you.”
