19-Year-Old Newlyweds Killed The Day After Their Wedding In Horrific Car Crash

When you’re young and in love, most people will tell you that you have no idea what you’re talking about – because, you’re too young to feel “true love.” But, 19-year-olds Austin Wesson and Rebekah Bouma didn’t care what other people thought of their relationship. Last Friday, the two got married after meeting on a mission trip in South Africa in February.

But, just one day after their wedding, Austin and Rebekah were both in a tragic car accident when their pickup truck spun off the road and into a tree. Austin was declared dead at the scene and Rebekah was pronounced dead on Monday, after being treated at a nearby hospital.

Rebekah’s mother posted to her Facebook page –

The two planned to move to Grand, Rapids, Michigan and attend college together, after getting married. It’s a horrible, sad thing to happen to two young people, who had the rest of their lives ahead of them.

Our thoughts and prayers are with their friends and family.
