Newlyweds killed in fatal accident moments after their wedding

Some couples meet very early in life and end up marrying when they reach adulthood. Although romantic encounters vary in length and intensity, many people can relay their own personal experience with young love. Unfortunately, sometimes such stories have tragic endings, as is the case with a young Texas couple who decided to tie the knot but then, sadly, were killed in a fatal accident immediately following their courthouse ceremony.

The couple were married by a justice of the peace on a recent Friday afternoon. According to local police, only a few minutes later, they were pulling out of the courthouse parking lot onto the highway when a pickup truck that was towing a trailer carrying a tractor struck them, killing both the 20-year-old woman and 19-year-old man. Family members have said they had dated off and on since eighth grade.

The groom's sister and mother were in the vehicle behind them and witnessed the crash. According to the groom's mother, the couple had been planning on holding a more elaborate ceremony in December. She explained that she had tried to pull her son and his new wife out of the car. The truck driver was not injured in the incident, and he may face charges. Authorities are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.

No doubt these grieving families are suffering a great deal following this horrific fatal accident, especially given the circumstances. When the investigation concludes, authorities may determine the crash was caused by reckless behavior or negligence on the part of the truck driver. The victims' family members have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas civil court. An attorney with experience in personal injury can review the case details and provide valuable legal guidance.
