LONDON UK. A newlywed couple from Utah was killed in a tragic car crash while on the way to their honeymoon after the new bride apparently dozed off at the wheel, according to reports.
Amy Moffat, 28, and Stephen Graham, 30, had just married about two weeks before the fatal wreck in Washington state about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
The two — who were wearing their seat belts — died at the scene, cops said.
Officials believe Moffat fell asleep while driving the Ford F150 pickup truck on I-82 about six miles east of the city of Prosser, according to the news outlet.
The couple was reportedly headed to the town of Whistler in British Columbia for their honeymoon before they were killed. “This weekend I felt like the luckiest girl in the world,” Moffat posted on her Facebook page on Aug. 13 along with photos of her and Graham’s mountaintop Utah wedding.
“I haven’t had the chance to share a lot of the details of Stephen Graham and my engagement. For a few reasons, Stephen and I decided to be married in an intimate civil ceremony with our immediate families, just beneath the peaks of Utah’s Wasatch mountains,” she wrote in the post.
“Beside a babbling summer creek, Stephen and I, in joyful disbelief, united our lives together and became husband and wife.”
May their souls rest in peace.
