ORANGE, Texas (AP) — Police say a Texas newlywed couple still wearing a tuxedo and wedding dress was killed in a crash with a truck as their vehicle tried to exit the driveway of the justice of the peace.
Orange, Texas, police say 19-year-old Harley Morgan and 20-year-old Rhiannon Boudreaux were pronounced dead at the scene Friday by the same judge who married them.
They were hit by a truck towing a trailer carrying a tractor. The force was so great that witnesses said the car flipped multiple times before coming to rest in a ditch.
The mother of the groom, LaShawna Morgan, told the Beaumont Enterprise newspaper, “They hadn’t even been married for five minutes.”
Families of the couple were following them and witnessed the crash.
LaShawna Morgan said: “I had to sit there and watch my two babies die.”
