Notre Dame alumna fiancé killed in crash on the way to their wedding Kathryn Schurtz

Kearney was from Pittsburgh, where their wedding was set to take place last week.

A viewing will be held today for a New Jersey woman who was killed along with her fiancé in a auto crash last week in Pennsylvania.

Schurtz, daughter of former Fanwood Councilwoman Karen Schurtz, and Kathryn's fiance Joseph D. Kearney, died in a crash on Wednesday while driving to their wedding in Pittsburgh, according to the Facebook page for the municipal government of Fanwood, Union County.

Schurtz was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and grew up in Fanwood, New Jersey, NBC New York reports.

A tractor-trailer was going west when the trucker realized too late that traffic ahead was slowing for a construction zone, police said. The tractor-trailer slammed into the couple's auto causing a chain reaction crash that ultimately involved four other tractor-trailers in addition to the couple's vehicle, LehighValleyLive.com reported.
