Jeremiah Grunblattman was honeymooning with his wife, Keturah on Long
Island when he was killed on Wednesday, September 30, just three days
after their wedding. According to the police, their SUV veered into
oncoming traffic and collided with a bus. Keturah was badly injured.
Suffolk County police said the newlywed who got married on Sunday,
September 27, were traveling west along Main Road in Greenport when
their vehicle swerved into the path of a Suffolk County Transit bus
shortly before noon Wednesday.
They had been updating friends about their honeymoon with pictures
posted on social media.
“They were just the perfect couple,” Keturah’s mother, Catherine
Stickann, said in a telephone interview. “That’s all I can tell you.”
An unopened wedding present sat outside the couple’s Clinton Hill home, where neighbors were just finding out about the tragedy.
The cause of the accident is still undetermined. According to their registry, the couple met in 2011.
Keturah Grünblatt is an opera director and choreographer, while her husband was a craftsman.
