Kelly Morehouse, 25, was killed over the weekend after she and her boyfriend were struck by another car. The two were riding his motorcycle when the grisly accident took place.

Morehouse and her boyfriend, Taylor Rolfson, 24, left the company of their friends on his bike on Saturday night when they were hit by a Lexus sedan. The collision occurred around 8:30 p.m. on Goldenwest Street at Rio Vista Drive in Huntington Beach, California.

Tadashi Mizutani, 68, is the driver of the Lexus. He was booked immediately following the accident on suspicion of driving under the influence. He did not suffer any serious injuries.

Morehouse and Rolfson were not as fortunate. They were both taken to the hospital and Morehouse had died while there. Rolfson is expected to make a recovery; however, both of his legs are broken.

Because of the death and the injuries that were caused by the accident, Mizutani faces felony charges. He was released the next day from jail after posting a $100,000 bail.

Friends and family of the couple are devastated by the news. According to close friends, Rolfson was prepared to spend the rest of his life with Morehouse. They had been together for seven years.

Morehose worked as a waitress at Michele’s Sugar Shack Café and had recently earned her Master’s Degree in Education.
