Fundraiser for DUI Victim's Families

Posted: Updated:

Las Vegas-- The community is rallying behind the families of the victims of the city's latest deadly DUI crash.

Frank Spenia and Savanna Gonzales were hit and killed earlier this month.

Investigators say Gustavo Martinez Garcia was intoxicated when he hit and killed the couple, driving on Summerlin Parkway.

A car wash put on by "Stop DUI" and local car clubs, helped raise money for the families.

Donations were originally going to help pay for funeral expenses, but the families wanted the money to go to future victims of DUI crashes.

The car wash raised more than $1,100.
