A very sad homecoming for a man, only married for a few hours, when he lost his wife. The groom is home from the hospital after his bride was killed on their wedding night in South Carolina.

This is a story that has had everyone I know grieving. Aric Hutchinson was on a motorized cart with his beautiful bride Samantha Miller Hutchinson and two others in Folly Beach on April 28th when the unthinkable happened.  The newlyweds and friends were leaving the reception when hit by an alleged drunk driver.  As you know the bride perished on the scene and Aric had serious injuries. She was from Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to Channel 9, Aric’s mother, Annette Hutchinson released this statement and it was published on the TV station’s website:“From the accident Aric received multiple injuries including two broken legs, one which had to be surgically repaired. Broken bones in his face which also had to be surgically repaired. Broken vertebrae’s in his back, brain bleeds, and numerous cuts with stitches,” she wrote. “He is physically recovering at home while trying to come to terms with the loss of his beautiful wife. Now he is doing the unimaginable of planning Sam’s funeral along with her family.”

Oh how our hearts ache for this family. To learn more about this story get details right here from Channel 9.
