WALKER, Mich. (WZZM)- The family of a Muskegon County woman killed in a road rage accident is asking drivers to forget their problems before getting behind the wheel.
Saturday, the family of 20-year-old Diyamond Foster held a Drive for Road Rage Awareness, passing the place where she was killed. Foster was run off the road exactly ten years ago Sunday.
"I was really devastated because she was staying with me for a couple of weeks and she was leaving with her daughter when it happened," said Rene Nelson-Ware, who was Foster's aunt.
The other driver was not charged in the wreck because prosecutors said both drivers exhibited road rage.
"It's not just a black thing or a white thing; it's everybody. Road rage can happen to anyone at anytime at any given place. And we all just need to be more courteous," explains Marquita Herron, Foster's cousin.
After Foster's death, her mother founded the group Reaching Out Against Road Rage or ROARR, to call for an end to road rage. In 2010, AAA estimated at least 1,500 people were killed in road rage incidents every year.
