It’s every mother’s worst nightmare to bury a child. Yet, just one month ago, 24-year-old Kristian “Nikki” Guerrero birthed and buried her unborn son and her husband, Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, in Bryan, Texas.

Kristin and Fabian had been driving on Highway 21 in San Marcos when a Texas State senior, Shana Elliott, veered across the center line and collided with the family’s car, killing Fabian, who was sitting in the passenger seat. Kristin then suffered bleeding of the brain and was forced to deliver their 19-week stillborn son two days later. She named him Fabian James, after his father.

According to county records, Elliott admitted to driving while intoxicated and had been arrested twice before for felony drug charges. Now, she’s been charged with intoxicated manslaughter and intoxication assault with a vehicle, and remains in Hays County Jail.

In the aftermath of this tragedy, Kristin is speaking out in hopes of keeping another incident like this from happening to someone else. She urges those reading to take the keys from someone who’s been drinking and to ask for a ride if you are the one intoxicated. The funeral, held August 12th, housed hundreds to grieve for Fabian and Fabian Jr.
