NTV Houston is learning that a newlywed couple was killed in a fiery car crash just moments after saying I do.
Orange County police say the judge that officiated 19-year-old Harley Morgan and 20-year-old Rhiannon Boudreaux’s wedding was the same judge that pronounced them dead.
The newlywed couple was hit by a trailer carrying a tractor. People who witnessed the tragic crash said that the impact was so great, the car flipped multiple times before landing in a ditch.
The mother of the groom, LaShawna Morgan, told the Beaumont Enterprise, “They hadn’t even been married for five minutes.”
Family members of the couple were trailing behind them and saw everything happen. They say the two were “childhood sweethearts.
The couple was still in their wedding attire when they were found dead.
LaShawna Morgan said: “I had to sit there and watch my two babies die.”
