A man who survived, but lost his wife and unborn baby in a car crash talks about it for the first time.

This comes as the driver police say is responsible for causing the accident faced a judge on Tuesday.

George Clem, 41, of Elcomb is being held on an eleven million dollar bond on charges of murder, fetal homicide and first-degree assault.

The pain of losing his wife is still strong...

“It's hard to talk about this. But I love her so much and we had a bright future ahead of us. We had a beautiful baby that was supposed to come into this world. She was supposed to finish school. I just wish I could see her again to tell her I love her,” Darryl Stewart said.

Darryl Stewart's wife, Elizabeth and her unborn child were killed in a head-on collision in June.

The driver of the other vehicle, 41 year old George Clem, was arrested Monday on a number of charges including wanton murder and fetal homicide.

“I don't see how anyone can get through the day without praying to God, because he's the only one, the only thing that's getting me through this,” Stewart said.

Darryl and Elizabeth met in high school, dated for 6 years and were recently married in April.

He says it's the simple things he misses most about his wife.

“Just seeing her face every morning. She had a beautiful smile. She had a great personality. Just telling her I love her everyday,” Stewart said.

He says he'll take comfort knowing that she's in a better place.

George Clem pleaded not guilty and will be back in court July 21st.

We were able to talk to his family in court, but they did not want to go on-camera.

They did say Clem ended up in an unfortunate situation and they are very sorry for Darryl's loss.

Toxicology reports confirmed Clem was under the influence at the time of the crash.
