Siblings Megan Patterson, 23, and Chris Clark, 27, remember their brother Michael John Clark and his girlfriend Kristen Lucille Sander-Corbitt, who lost their lives on Nov. 4, 2002, in a car crash. The fourth annual event is meant as a reminder to teenage drivers to drive responsibly when attending prom night and graduation ceremonies.

Seventy-nine young people who lost their lives in traffic-related collisions were remembered Wednesday evening at the fourth annual Evening of Remembrance.

The city-sponsored event at the Youth Grove in Central Park is held before local prom nights and graduations to remind teens to drive responsibly.

The half-acre grove features individual pillars that mimic cut tree stumps, each representing a young life cut short on the road.
