A woman married her boyfriend in a hospital ceremony the day before succumbing to injuries she suffered when a car struck her in Ottawa County.
Amanda Lawrence was set to wed Shane Swift next month. Instead, she married him on Friday, the day before she died.
The 21-year-old Hudsonville resident had been in critical condition following the crash Aug. 18 in Port Sheldon Township. A 16-year-old driver says he didn't see Lawrence walking due to the position of the sun. He struck her with a GMC Silverado.
Her co-worker, Debbie Petolick, told The Holland Sentinel a family member picked up the wedding bands at Lawrence's workplace, Kay Jewelers, so they could perform the wedding on Friday.
A funeral service is scheduled for Wednesday.
