A family is demanding charges, after a 25-year old woman was killed over the weekend during a head-on collision in northeast Oakland County.

The family of Marissah Haack believes the driver was drunk when he crossed the center line on Romeo Road near Townsend Road in Addison Township.

The 25-year-old was on her way home after a night of work when the crash happened early Saturday morning. Her mother, Diane Haack, says, "I will never be the same. I think about her wedding day, her having kids. She was 25-years old. She was just a baby."

State police say alcohol could be a factor, but they are waiting for test results to come back.

The other driver remains in the hospital. No charges have been filed yet, but the case will be sent to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office for review.

Haack, with tears in her eyes, went on to say, "Look at all the pictures. I couldn't find any when she wasn't happy. There were none when she wasn't happy."
