New Jersey couple on way to wedding killed in chain reaction crash

A couple on their way to their own wedding were killed following a chain reaction crash along I-78 in Berks County last week.

The Fanwood Borough, New Jersey Facebook page identified one of the victims at Kathryn Schurtz.

Schurtz's obituary says she was on her way to her wedding in Pittsburgh with her fiance, Joseph Kearny, who also died in the crash. Police say a tractor-trailer slammed into the back of the car which sent it into the back of another semi-truck.

In all, five trucks were involved in the November 14 crash.

Schurtz, according to a Facebook page for the town of Fanwood, was the daughter of a former city councilwoman. The 35-year-old lived in Jersey City and worked for Oracle in New York City.

"She will be remembered for her voracious appetite for reading, love of cooking, and trailblazing new adventures with Joseph," her obituary read. A funeral mass for Schurtz will be held Tuesday in Scotch Plains, N.J.

Further information on Kearney wasn't immediately available.
