A bride-and-groom-to-be were killed on the way to their Pennsylvania wedding Wednesday after a tractor-trailer plowed into their vehicle and caused it to burst into flames.
New Jersey couple Kathryn M. Schurtz, 35, and Joseph D. Kearney passed away as a result of the collision on the Interstate 78 before they prepared to tie the knot in Pittsburgh.
Three other people were injured because the driver of the large motor could not slow down and caused a knock-on effect where four other articulated lorries were involved.
Two of the semi-trailer trucks burned alongside the couple’s motor.
Fire crews were pictured trying to take out the flames after the collision on the highway.
After the Windsor Township incident at 2.38pm – the second crash in the area within eight minutes – the westbound section of the highway was shut down for 12 hours that day. The eastbound lane was closed until 7am after the fighter was put out.
