A 25-year-old woman running errands to prepare for her wedding was killed in a two-vehicle accident.
Susan Walton, a nurse, died Thursday, just four days after moving to Knoxville from Texas.
Relatives from Canada and England had been expected at the wedding next weekend.
"She was so excited about her family coming in," said her fiance, Doug Draper. "She hadn't seen her parents in two years."
Draper said Friday that his fiancee had been handling last-minute details for the wedding. "It was all that she lived for," he said.
Police said Ms. Walton's vehicle was struck head-on by a van whose driver had suffered a medical problem.
