A young Kansas couple died in a car crash just a day after pledging to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
Austin Wesson and Rebekah Bouma, 19-year-olds who fell in love on a Christian mission trip to South Africa six months ago, were married on Friday, though their joy turned to tragedy only hours later.
The lovebirds’ Ford F-150 left a road south of Wichita and smashed into a tree on Saturday evening, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office told the Daily News.
Wesson was pronounced dead at the scene of the rural road, with Bouma surviving at a local hospital until Monday morning.
