A newlywed couple from Martin County were killed in a tragic car crash after the bride dozed off at the wheel, according to reports.
A 28-year old woman and a 30-year old man, had just married before the fatal wreck in Martin County, The Post reported.
The two, who were wearing their seat belts, died at the scene, police said.
Officials believe the woman fell asleep while driving the Ford F150 pickup truck on I-82 about six miles east of the city of Port Salerno, according to the news outlet.
The vehicle drifted into the left and the 28-year old woman overcorrected, causing the pickup to roll, The Post reported.
The couple were reportedly headed to the town of Fort Pierce in St. Lucie County for their honeymoon before they were killed.
“This weekend I felt like the luckiest girl in the world,” the 28-year old posted on her Facebook page along with photos of her and her husband.
“I haven’t had the chance to share a lot of the details of my husband and my engagement. For a few reasons, my husband and I decided to be married in an intimate civil ceremony with our immediate families,” she wrote in the post.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious truck accident involving a newlywed couple, which ultimately, resulted in their death.
