THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

The wife of a man killed in a crash is sending a message to anyone who may think about driving after having a few drinks.       

Thursday morning, 22-year-old Alex Hicks and 32-year-old Justin Zombro were killed in a crash at the intersection of Egg and Butter Road and Palmer Road in Thomas County.     

State troopers say both men had been drinking and were not wearing their seat belts.   Hicks' wife is left to raise three small children.     

She hopes her husband's death will help others realize the impact of drinking and driving. "I want people to know that if anything good comes out of this-- drinking and driving it kills," said Lisa Blow.       

Hicks worked at Papa John's in Thomasville. The restaurant is collecting donations to help his family, if you'd like to make a donation don't hesitate to stop by.    

His wife has also started a pledge on her facebook asking people to promise not to drink and drive.
