(ABC 6 News)-- It is an annual message, but it cuts a lot deeper for some. One woman was a survivor of what is considered as the worst DWI crash in Minnesota.
Rita Seha was celebrating the birth of her baby boy with her closest loved ones on Memorial weekend in 2009. They were traveling back to Rochester together when their van was struck by a drunk driver.
Five people lost their lives in that crash and the only survivors were Rita and the drunk driver, Christopher Frisch.
Seha joins ABC 6 News to put a more personal face in what is usually a PSA for drivers to not drive drunk especially during the holiday times. She has since forgiven the drunk driver, Christopher Frisch but has become more involved in raising awareness for drivers to not drink when driving.
"I wasn't innocent to drinking and driving prior to that so if I'm pointing a finger, I need to stop and take a look at me first," said Seha. "If God can forgive me, I need to forgive others.
