Moody airman, fiance tie the knot in the hospital

October 26, 2007

Valdosta - A Moody airman married his fiance in the hospital, after she was almost killed in a car crash while driving to visit him.

25-year-old Kimberly Douglas Morgan of Russellville, Alabama was airlifted to a hospital in Huntsville after the early morning crash on October 16th.

Douglas suffered four fractured vertebrae, cracked ribs, and needed 28 staples in her head.

Senior Airmen Troy Morgan rushed to her bedside.  When he saw her, he decided their January wedding needed to be moved up to that day.

"As soon as I found out that vital information about my fiance, I kind of got tunnel vision. I knew what I had to do," Troy says.

"He said something along the lines of, regardless of whether its January or now, I want to marry you!" Kimberly adds.

Kimberly is now home recovering from her injuries.

The couple may still have a reception in January and they're looking forward to skydiving and writing a book on long distance relationships.
