Debris on the asphalt is a harsh reminder of a crash Saturday afternoon that killed three people and has one still in Shock Trauma.

All the victims were in their 20s.

Thomas Mozingo was driving on Route 213 just outside of Centreville, with Amelia Sichler in the car.

Witnesses say Mozingo was driving fast and passing people illegally when he crashed head on with a car driven by John Ford. He was injured, while his girlfriend Samama Roark was killed.

"The investigation shows aggressive driving was a factor," said Greg Shipley, a spokesman for the Maryland State Police.

The father of the only survivor came to the scene of the crash Monday.

He did not want to speak to ABC2 News out of respect to the families of the people that were killed.

His son was driving the car with his girlfriend of seven years. He said they met at the University of Maryland, and had plans to become engaged.

Mozingo, the driver police say was responsible for this crash, has more than 15 previous traffic related violations.

Now, a father pauses to reflect on a moment that changed the lives of his son and three other families forever.
