A newlywed couple was killed when their car collided with a truck in Texas a few minutes after.
Harley Joe Morgan, 19, and Rhiannon Boudreaux Morgan, 20, who had known each other since grade eight, pulled out of the driveway of a court in Orange County where they tied the knot when the accident occurred.
Police said Harley Morgan was driving a Chevrolet in 2004 when he collided with a 2015 Ford F-250 pickup that was towing a trailer with a tractor and driving south on Highway 87 at 3 p.m. KDFM.

The young couple, both from the city of Vidor, were declared dead at the crash site near the 2300 block of Highway 87.
The mother of the groom Lashawna Morgan and sister Christina Fontenot drove behind the couple and witnessed the horror crash.
While still wearing the blood-stained clothing as she tried to remove high school sweethearts from the wreckage, Lashawna said her & # 39; worst nightmare & # 39; happened before her eyes.
The devastated mother told KDFM: & # 39; They were just married. They are not even married for five minutes.
& # 39; Those two babies & # 39; s. All they wanted was to get married and start their life. They had so many dreams. & # 39;
Lashawna fought tears when she explained how the couple had fallen in love with each other since grade eight
& # 39; I saw my baby die. I still carry my son's blood because I did my best to pull him and her out of the car.

Lashawna Morgan said her & # 39; worst nightmare & # 39; happened before her eyes, because she was still wearing blood-stained clothing after trying to remove the pair from the wreck
& # 39; I witnessed my own worst nightmare. That is an image that will haunt me for the rest of my life. I will not forget.
& # 39; It will never go away. I'll see that truck hits my baby and kills my baby every night of my life, the rest of the time I'm on earth. & # 39;
Christina Fontenot claimed that the couple is planning a larger ceremony for December 20 because they wanted a Christmas wedding.
She added: & # 39; On December 20, we were going to hold the big ceremony with the flowers, all the friends, the rest of the family, everything. & # 39;
The car is badly damaged in a ditch on the side of the road after the crash in the 2300 block of Highway 87 South at around 3pm on Friday
Police said Harley Morgan was driving a Chevrolet in 2004 when he collided with a 2015 Ford F-250 pickup that towed a tractor trailer and headed south on Highway 87
Meanwhile, Lashawna claimed that the image of the horrific crash and watching her son and his bride die will haunt her forever.
& # 39; My worst nightmare happened right before my eyes. If you have children, go home and hug them, because I don't have my child, I don't have the only thing in my life that made me happy.
& # 39; Even if you are angry, hug your family. Love your family. Even if they made you angry, make it up. Don't go to bed mad because you don't know. You don't know how fast you can lose that person. & # 39;
Justice of the Peace Joy Dubose-Simonton, who led the couple's ceremony, later went to the crash scene to pronounce the couple dead, according to KFDM.
Footage shows the car badly damaged in a ditch on the side of the road. The male driver of the pickup truck was not injured, police said.
