Two families are mourning the loss of a couple who was supposed to get married next month.
The couple was killed in a head on collision with a priest, while they were delivering wedding invitations to friends and family.
Mariusz Dudek, 24, and Dominika Lewandowska, 24, of Obroki, Poland, who got engaged in December, were due to marry next month.
However, while hand delivering their invitations, their car collided head-on with a Volvo driven by Father Grzegorz, 35.
Witnesses told police that the priest tried to overtake a tractor and plowed right into the couple’s Audi, which was driving in the opposite direction.
The couple and the priest were pronounced dead at the scene.
When police arrived, they closed the narrow road and diverted traffic so that the bodies can be removed from the wrecked cars.
A police spokesperson said that the couple had wedding invitations in the back of the car and police have established that they were delivering them to guests.
“Unfortunately, what should have been a day of great joy will now be a huge loss,” the police spokesperson said.
