A bride dies in a crash after her wedding leaving her husband with possible charges, according to a Jan. 3 eCanadanow report. Georgia bride Kali Dobson had just exchanged vows with her new groom Ryan Quinton when the unthinkable happened.

According to the New York Daily News, just a few hours after the wedding ceremony, the couple was involved in a car crash that left the 25-year-old bride dead. Quinton, 27, reportedly lost control of his Pontiac Firebird, which launched off the highway and crashed. His new wife was thrown from the car, said Franka Young, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

She was not wearing a seatbelt, the Marietta Daily Journal reported. Quinton told investigators that the accident stemmed from his attempts to avoid hitting a dog. He subsequently flagged down a passing vehicle and was helped by driver Chris Thomas. “His shirt was all torn up and he was bleeding. He had blood all over his face and blood coming out of his hands and stuff and just looked bad. And it scared me to death,” said witness Chris Thomas. “I said, 'Come here, buddy.' I didn't even know his name, and I held him and I said, 'Let's pray,' and we prayed.”

Dobson died on the scene and Quinton was taken to Northside-Hospital Cherokee in Canton for treatment. “Blood was drawn to determine if alcohol was a contributing factor,” Young said Monday. “The crash is still under investigation. Charges are pending.”

Thomas said things got really “hopeless” after several shocked guests from the wedding stopped at the crash scene. “And then things got really, really sad and hopeless for a minute,” he told Fox 5 News. “It was horrible all the way around. And tragic.”
