A newlywed couple has been identified among three people who were killed in a highway crash in the US state of Tennessee.
Jessiah Plemons, 31, and his new wife Lillian Rose, 25, were killed in the crash on the morning of Sunday, October 17.
The couple had been married just two days earlier, on Friday, October 15, WBIR reports.
The third person to die in the crash was 23-year-old Madison Davis.
The trio was struck on the highway by a Chevrolet pickup after becoming stranded when their vehicle struck a guardrail.
All three died at the scene.
Plemons mother Michelle said she was informed of the newlyweds’ death after receiving a knock at the door on Sunday morning.
“It’s the worst thing that a mother can go through,” she said.
The couple had four children, Michelle added.
“Jess was my everything, the glue that held our family together,” she said.
“Lily made my baby happy up until the very end.”
“She is just such a sweet girl. She brightened the room and they looked so happy together.
“It’s made me feel more and more alive, knowing Jess did a lot of great things out here before all this.”
She said she will always remember the impact Jessiah and Lily had on so many people.
There was still much to accomplish for the happy couple.
She added Jessiah was a great parent and his children will miss him.
The crash remains under investigation.
