NORTHVILLE, Mich. (AP) (01/ 12/19)- Relatives of a Michigan family of five killed in a highway crash in Kentucky remembered their lives during an emotional candlelight vigil. Friday's vigil was held in Northville, Michigan.

The Abbas family was returning home from Florida last Sunday when a suspected drunken driver traveling the wrong way struck their vehicle head-on on Interstate 75.

The crash killed 42-year-old Issam Abbas, 38-year-old Rima Abbas, 14-year-old Ali Abbas, 13-year-old Isabella Abbas, and 7-year-old Giselle Abbas.

The other driver also died in the crash.

The Detroit News reports that Rimi Abbas' sister, Rana Abbas Taylor, told mourners through tears that, "I can't even begin to share with you how painful this has been on our entire family."
