Zach Kincaid and his four children need your prayers.
On September 9th, 2018, Zach Kincaid was traveling home from a work trip while he was talking on the phone to his wife, Krystil. Krystil, who was eight months pregnant with the couple’s fifth child, was headed home when she was hit head-on by a BMW traveling at 85 mph. While Zach was talking with his wife when he suddenly heard a scream.
Zach, 28, later learned the devastating news that his wife and unborn daughter were the victims of a drunk driving incident. His unborn daughter, who was due on October 8th, 2018, was pronounced dead on the scene while his wife, 29, was flown to the newest hospital.
Krystil was put on life support and Zach was able to say goodbye to her one last time. Sadly, she died the following day, Zach and his four children now left alone without their mother and baby sister.
The driver was a professional boxer, Marcos Forestal, 28. According to the Helmet Police Department, “Marcos displayed symptoms of alcohol intoxication and was arrested.” He is being charged for drunk driving and manslaughter, however, he’s pled not guilty to his actions.
Zach and his children have since laid Krystil to rest, along with their unborn daughter who they had planned to name Avalynn. Zach has since shared heart-wrenching photos of his wife and daughter’s funeral on his GoFundMe page. The photos have received major attention as Zach carried his unborn daughter to his wife’s coffin and placed the baby in his wife’s arms. Photos of Zach shutting the coffin on his wife and daughter have gone viral, along with a heart-shattering post about his current grief.
In a Facebook post, Zach shared his anger and heartbreak by revealing that the man who was responsible for his tragedy was only getting a “10 years max” sentence. He shared, “A drunk driver speeding down a two-lane highway at 85+mph in the wrong lane around a blind corner destroyed my family. The max sentence for killing my wife and daughter is 10 years max. The state of California doesn't think there was intent, but I know driving recklessly in that manner, he didn't intend anything good.... my daughter's due date was October 9th, a 36 week old fully developed baby is not considered a person in the state of California. How do I explain to my children this injustice? My children and I have never felt so disposable... Look at the devastation left behind that is my family and tell me it isn't time for a change....imagine if this was your family... Who will fight with me for a change? Who will spread this like wildfire? Who will write their representatives and demand change?? We cannot as a society look the other way any longer. Driving drunk is intent.”
