A young newlywed couple hired a moving company to move then into their first home together located in Missouri. The driver of the moving company drove its moving truck along with all their earthly belongings into a bridge overpass damaging or destroying all their things. Following the crash, the driver was arrested on outstanding warrants. The moving company refused to pay for any of the damage it caused.
