LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas couple is mourning the loss of their only daughter, killed by an underage drunk driver.
The teen charged with her death faced a judge on Wednesday. Later that day, some of her friends gathered for a candlelight vigil at the scene of the crash.
Twenty-four-year-old Angela Peterson was driving home from a friend's house just after 1 a.m. Sunday when police say an 18-year old driver ran a red light at Flamingo and Rainbow and broadsided her car. The driver's blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit.
"She was perfect. She was my sunshine baby. She was the glow of our lives," said Angela's father Frank Peterson. "I lost 24 years of my life when that phone call came at 4:30 in the morning. I lost my heart."
Eighteen-year-old Kevin Miranda has been charged with two felony counts of driving under the influence. According to the arrest report, Miranda admitted to officers at the crash scene that he had at least four shots of Jack Daniels and ran a red light.
Police say Miranda's preliminary breath test at the scene registered at 0.14. A 16-year-old female passenger in Miranda's car was treated and released from the hospital.
"Somebody gave them or served them the alcohol that led to this and I hope the investigation doesn't just stop at the 18-year-old," said the Peterson's attorney Mark Cook.
While Metro's investigation into the fatal crash continues, the father searches for his own answers about how he will manage without his only daughter. The UNLV student still lived at home and seemed to brighten the lives of everyone who knew her. "You can feel the emptiness in the house with no life upstairs in her room right across from ours. We sleep on the couch downstairs now because we can't stand to sleep in our room so close to hers knowing that her bed will be empty now forever," he said.
