CAVE JUNCTION, Ore.-- Dozens marched along Highway 199 for Jarred Houston and Robert Calvin. In late October of last year both men got into an argument along Highway 199 in Cave Junction and died after a car struck the both of them. The driver is still on the loose.

"I'm a firm believer in letting the law do their job and we're going to continue to do that. But how long does it take,? how many more people have to suffer from these people's actions?" Somethings gotta happen or somebody's gotta intervene," said Houston's brother Daniel.

That's the reason Houston and Calvin's sister Brook said they marched down 199. They said despite their frustration a suspect has not been caught, they're not giving up on finding who killed their brothers.

"It's been very hard for my family for the community. Robert Calvin was a member of this community for at least 25 years a hard working  honest decent man," said Brook Calvin.
