LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK — A Long Island couple on their way to get married over the weekend got into a little fender bender which almost caused them to miss the wedding. Enter the good old boys in blue.
According to NBC 4 News, Joseph DeMichele and Felice Terwilliger were en route to the town hall in Lake Grove when they crashed into a car in front of them that was doing a U-turn.
Luckily no one was hurt when the accident occurred at 1:15 p.m. The only problem was the wedding was set for 1:30 p.m and now their Jeep Grand Cherokee was out of commission.
When Suffolk County Police Sergeant Thomas Kennedy showed up on the scene and
found out about the couples' dilemma, he called for another squad car.
That's when Officer Cody Matthews showed up and drove the couple, including their two kids ages 5 and 10, to their ceremony.
So with the sirens blaring, the patrol car zipped the couple with their kids right up to the town hall doorsteps.
When they got to town hall, they found out that they were short one witness, so they asked Officer Matthews if he could lend a helping hand.
Matthews ended up being DeMichele's best man and his witness. Talk about some wedding crashers.
