    Harley Morgan was still wearing his dark suit and Rhiannon Boudreaux her wedding dress when the Texas "childhood sweethearts" were killed in a crash with a truck minutes after they were married.

    Nineteen-year-old Morgan and 20-year-old Boudreaux were pronounced dead Friday at the scene by the same Justice of the Peace who had just married them.

    "I'm talking five minutes. You may kiss the bride," Orange police Cpt. Keith Longlois said. "The family was right behind them. They were all going out to go to wherever they were going to have their reception."

    Longlois said they were "childhood sweethearts" who decided to be married by a popular Orange County Justice of the Peace Joy Dubose-Simonton.

A truck pulling a trailer carrying a heavy tractor slammed into their vehicle. The force was so great that witnesses said the car flipped multiple times before coming to rest in a ditch.

    The driver of the truck was not identified, but Longlois said he was cooperating with the investigation and there was no sign of wrongdoing. Drug and alcohol tests would be conducted, he said.

    "I had to sit there and watch my two babies die," the mother of the groom, LaShawna Morgan, told the Beaumont Enterprise.
