CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities in Illinois say a man married less than
seven hours has been killed along with a motorist he stopped to help in
William Knight and his bride were on the way to a hotel from their
wedding reception last night when they stopped to help a woman whose car
slid off the road. The Lake County sheriff's office says Knight and the
woman he was helping were standing on the side of the road when they
were struck by several vehicles and killed.
Knight's bride, Nikki Knight, tells the Chicago Sun-Times she went
from newlywed to widow, "the highest high to the lowest low," in a
matter of hours.
Police say all drivers involved in the crash remained at the scene and no charges had been filed as of this afternoon.
