Newlywed Couple Killed in Valentine's Day Crash

"They were soulmates," said Larry Patin, who officiated the couple's wedding. "I don't know how she would've lived without him."

A newlywed couple killed in a violent multi-vehicle crash on Valentine's Day is being remembered for their extraordinary love.

Kayla Amos, 20, and Daniel Amos, 21, were traveling southbound on Solomons Island Road in Edgewater, Maryland, when the driver of a Toyota crossed the center line and struck the young couple's car. A third car then hit both vehicles, Anne Arundel County police said.

Daniel Amos was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife died at an area hospital, police department spokeswoman Cpl. Jacklyn Davis said.

Friends of the couple told The Capital Gazette some people thought they were too young to marry when they tied the knot last summer.

"All us old people said, 'You have to wait. You're too young.' We were proven wrong," Daniel Palmer, and executive pastor at the Amos' church, told The Gazette.

And yet, many could not imagine one without the other.

"They were soulmates," said Larry Patin, who officiated the couple's wedding. "I don't know how she would've lived without him."

According to The Capital Gazette, the driver of the Toyota suffered serious injuries in the crash. This third driver refused medical treatment at the scene.

Police said neither alcohol nor speed appears to be factors in the crash.
