Family members held a vigil Wednesday for a Bridgeport man who was killed in a double fatal car accident over the weekend.
Kye Jackson, 28, of Bridgeport, was killed on Route 25 in Bridgeport early Sunday morning when a driver going the wrong way struck his vehicle head-on. 
Authorities say the other driver was also killed
Jackson's family says the holiday season will never be the same following his tragic death less than three weeks before Christmas.
They say the Bassick High School graduate went on to study at Housatonic Community College and worked for a local company as a machinist.
The family says they're doing their best to stay positive and not bitter or resentful of something that can't be changed.
