The tragic story of newlyweds Samantha Miller and Eric Hutchinson has moved around the world.
On their way home from their wedding in Folly Beach, South Carolina on April 28, they were hit from behind.
The golf cart they were in is said to have been thrown more than 90 metres, killing Samantha, 34, who was still wearing her wedding dress. Eric, 36, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
A 25-year-old woman has been charged with drunk driving and negligent homicide in the aftermath of the fatal crash.
Now the groom says that the wedding night was one of the best evenings in his entire life.
– She was so happy. I mean, planning a wedding, as most people know, is pretty stressful. But he said in an interview with the program that she felt strangely calm that evening “Good morning, America.”
ABC has so far only released a sneak peek of the interview, which will air Friday morning local time.
Eric Hutchinson also attended a memorial service for his wife in Folly Beach this weekend, CBS writes.
Earlier on Thursday, it became known that the widower had taken legal action against the woman who crashed the couple’s golf cart. He also took legal action against the bars it served in the hours leading up to the fatal accident.
In the lawsuit, Hutchinson’s attorneys wrote that the incident turned an “adventurous love story into an unimaginable tragedy,” writing CBS.
Christopher Gramiccioni, the lawyer for the woman accused in the case, says NBC News He does not represent her in the civil suit of the widower.
We can’t imagine what the families are going through, and they have our deepest sympathies. And we ask you not to rush and prejudge the matter, according to what he said in a statement to the channel.
