But Bill Rigby said Zirk had many opportunities to prevent the accident, noting that Zirk’s mother had begged him not to drive that evening.
“Nobody forced him to drink. Nobody forced him to get in that car and drive off,” Bill Rigby said. “If there had been stiffer penalties, maybe my daughter would still be with me.”
An Army veteran, Angela Rigby, 33, had opened the Red, White and Beautiful Salon in Fairfield just a year prior to the accident. She loved animals and also left behind a brother and a 10-year-old daughter, Dasani.
