While we're learning more about the man behind the wheel in a triple fatality early Thursday morning, the mother of one of the victims is speaking out.
Marcus Johnson was one of three University of Minnesota students killed early Thursday morning along the Interstate near Madison. His mother, Franchon Johnson, says Marcus' young life was taken way too soon.
"It's hard to say that he didn't suffer," his mother said. "It happened in ten seconds from a drunk driver."
Police said Johnson, 20, of Milwaukee, along with Elysia Rapp, 20, of Racine, and Wilfredo Ugarte, 23, of Puerto Rico were all killed when Bradley Erickson, 31, hit the back of their vehicle. The group was pulled off to the side of the Interstate as they were changing a flat tire.
Johnson's family said they're angry about Erickson's actions.
"Regardless of what it is -- murder is murder," Marcus' uncle, Elder Ron Games said.
