Collinsville, Ill (KSDK) -- Thanksgiving week marks a somber anniversary for a Metro East family.

Family and family of the Uhl sisters gathered Tuesday night for the third anniversary memorial dinner at the Collinsville VFW Hall.

Jessica, 18, and Kelli, 13, were killed on Interstate 64 in 2007.

Illinois State Trooper Matt Mitchell was driving 126 miles-per-hour and texting when he crashed into the car carrying the two sisters.

Mitchell pleaded guilty to reckless homicide.  He is not serving jail time.

The Uhl family filed a $46 million wrongufl death suit against Mitchell and Illinois State police.
