LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

World Day of Remembrance for victims of crashes will be marked during a ceremony in Las Vegas Sunday.

The event will be held at Palm Mortuary at 1325 north Main Street, near Owens Avenue starting at 2 p.m. It is open to the public.

The Ped Safe program, of the Transportation Research Center at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which works on pedestrian safety issues in the valley will host the event.

"It's great for loved ones who have lost someone in a car crash to have a day set aside specifically to remember the people who they loved that are no longer here and most of those people would love for their story to be a cautionary tale," said Erin Breen, director of UNLV Transportation Research Center.

Personalized ornaments dedicated to victims will be available for the ceremony in person or online.

If you would like more information on ornaments or to RSVP for the event, visit www.pedsafe.vegas.
