NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WSMV) – A Tennessee bride and groom recently took a detour on the way to their wedding reception so the bride could help on the scene of a car crash.
Sarah Ray has been a paramedic with Montgomery County Emergency Medical Services for more than five years. That’s how she met her husband, who does the same thing for a living.
“We got married,” Ray said. “Short and sweet.”
The grandmother, grandfather and father of the bride were involved in a crash after the wedding. Their car was totaled.
“We got a phone call saying that they had been in a wreck,” Ray said.
Wedding day or not, Ray said she and her new husband knew they needed to respond.
“The first thing I did was hop in the back of the ambulance with my grandmother to check on her,” Ray said. “She was there with the paramedic and EMT that responded.”
