A pair of Utah newlyweds died in a fatal car crash after the bride fell asleep at the wheel while traveling to their Canadian honeymoon on Sunday night. 

Amy Moffat, 28, and 30-year-old Stephen Graham had been driving to Whistler, British Columbia, when the crash occurred. 

According to Washington State Patrol officers, Moffat fell asleep at the wheel at approximately 7.30pm near Yakima, Washington. 

‘When the truck went into its first roll, it lifted off the ground and was high enough where both the passenger and I had to look up through the windshield to see the truck above us, and then I slowed down just in time because it landed right in our path,’ Spencer Luczak, a close friend of the couple, explained to Fox 13. 

Luczak, who had been driving behind the couple as they made their way to the popular ski destination, rushed over to the pair but knew they had not survived the crash.

'You could just see the twinkle in her eye, the smile in her face. It was the happiest I've seen her in years,' asserted Moffat's uncle, Rex Bosen

Aubree Bosen, Moffat’s cousin, said that the couple’s death is only sweetened by the fact that they were together during their final moments. 

‘It’s really hard because you want so much for them, but I think the fact that they were together, and they were happy, and they were going on an adventure, it summarizes their life together,’ she said. ‘I think they’re still on an adventure together and it’s just not what they planned.’ 

Luczak holds onto similar feelings as well, stating that he watched them live and die together.  

‘I watched them live together, I watched them ride bikes together, smile together, and laugh, and I watched them die together,’ he shared. ‘But they went hand in hand through the veil and that gives me reassurance that they’re still together.’ 

Graham’s Facebook states that he was a photographer while Moffat was a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
