WHIO: Newlyweds share first dance on shut down U.S. 35

From WHIO:

“A just-married couple on the way to their reception became trapped in traffic Saturday evening after a multiple-vehicle accident shut down the highway for nearly two hours.

Jeff and Rebecca Payne of Centerville celebrated their nuptials in Beavercreek and were on the way to their reception at Top of the Market, 32 Webster St., in downtown Dayton. That’s when they were stuck in the crash that took awhile for crews to clean up. Only one person was taken to a local hospital and no injuries were serious.

The couple used the time to share their first dance as a married couple, and strangers were taking photos and using the hashtag #rescuethepaynes on social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter. You can watch the couple’s special moment captured by videographer Levi Curby above.”
