The Rough family is grieving all over again.

They are forced to relive memories of losing a daughter to a drunk driver because now they have lost their son.

Kody Rough, 23, the brother of Meagan Rough, reportedly died in a crash northwest of Kaufman, southeast of the Metroplex.

Troopers report Rough's truck went into a ditch and rolled. He was ejected.

Kari Rough, the victim's mother, has lost both of her children in traffic crashes.

She expresses gratitude on Facebook for the prayer, love and support during this time of great sorrow.

Nineteen Meagan Rough died in Lubbock in 2012 when a drunk driver rear ended her car on Glenna Goodacre Boulevard.

The vehicle spun into the median, she was ejected even though she was wearing a seat belt. 

Police report Jason White's blood alcohol content was .20 -- more than twice the legal limit. A judge sentenced White to 15 years for intoxicated manslaughter in 2015.

Visitation for Kody Rough is set for Friday night with services Saturday morning in Kaufman.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Meagan Rough Memorial Foundation, a non-profit set up to advocate against drunken or impaired driving.
