About 1,700 lives were lost in North Carolina last year in traffic crashes. Almost 500 of those were a result of drunk driving. Friday those lives will be remembered in Battleship Park. The governor's Highway Safety Program and the non-profit Justice in Motion are hosting the annual Tree of Life and Candlelight Vigil. In addition to the memorial service, law enforcement officers and agencies will be recognized for their efforts to stop drinking and driving. The event begins at 5:30 p.m.
