Families release doves at vigil
Families and friends of several victims of the June 22, 2009 Red Line crash released white doves at an evening vigil near the New Hampshire Ave bridge overlooking the accident on Tuesday.
The bridge was decorated with flower wreaths, photos and the nurse's uniform of Veronica DuBose, 29, who died in the crash.
"It feels like it just happened yesterday," said Raja Williams, Dubose's son.
Gathering at a grassy lot nearby, Evelyn Hernandez, 19, daughter of victim Anna Hernandez, stood with her five siblings and began sobbing as she recalled her mother's struggles and her own. "It's not easy losing a mother," she said amid the tears. "My mother is looking down at me and telling me, 'You can do it.'"
