Bride-to-be Brittany Huber, 25, tragically lost her life in a car accident in Georgia when she was killed on impact according to authorities.
Her fiancee, John Redman, 23, who was operating the vehicle at the time, is hospitalized under heavy sedation in the ICU with head trauma and other injuries.
The couple was on their way to Mobile, Ala., their hometown, for their wedding which was scheduled for tomorrow. “The crash happened Monday night on Interstate 85 in Meriwether County, south of Atlanta. The Georgia State Patrol says the male driver lost control of the car, and hit a concrete bridge support. His fiance was pronounced dead on the scene. He’s hanging onto life with serious injuries.”
Cops, including an accident reconstruction team, are conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash. The state patrol indicated that bad weather in the area was not a factor in the car crash that took the life of Brittany Huber.
Redman, an assistant basketball coach at Dalton (Ga.) State College, which is located about 90 miles north of Atlanta, is the son of former LPGA golfer Susie Redman. Huber was a paraprofessional at City Park Elementary School in Dalton.
Dalton State released a statement that read in part that “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this impossibly hard time. [Brittany] was an amazing person who was loved by all who met and knew her. John was rushed to Grady Memorial in Atlanta. He was unconscious when paramedics arrived at the scene of the accident…Please keep the Redman and Huber families in your prayers.”
A memorial service was held tonight at the same church in Mobile where the couple was to be married.
Separately, but also occurring in Georgia, a bride was tragically killed in late December in a horrible wedding day car accident after her husband lost control of their Pontiac Firebird, and it rolled down an embankment. They had just left their wedding reception. Authorities subsequently charged with husband with DUI, vehicular homicide, reckless driving, and failure to maintain lane.
In another wedding day automotive tragedy in December, a just-married Iraq War veteran was run over and killed in Indiana while trying to help a stranded motorist. He and his bride were also returning from their wedding reception.
