New Jersey couple tragically killed on the way to their own wedding

Kearney was from Pittsburgh, where their wedding was set to take place last week.

A couple were killed in a fiery pile-up while driving to their own wedding ceremony when their auto was crushed between two trucks.

According to WWBC, the tractor-trailer pushed the couple's auto into another vehicle, causing a five auto pileup. That crash caused a fiery chain reaction ultimately involving the couple's vehicle, which caught on fire, and five tractor-trailers, the Reading Eagle reports. The tractor trailer struck the vehicle the couple was traveling in.

The accident involved five tractor-trailers and a sedan, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

According to the town of Fanwood Facebook page, the bride-to-be was the daughter of former councilwoman Karen Schurtz.

Kathryn Schurtz, 35, of Jersey City grew up in Fanwood and loved reading, cooking and having new adventures with her fiance, according to the post.

Schurtz's family will hold visitation services at a local church in New Jersey on Monday and Tuesday and asked that friends and family make donations to the Kathryn M. Schurtz Scholarship Fund at Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, N.J.
