Video: Man charged in wedding DUI

Georgia State Patrol officials say 28-year-old Ryan Quinton is charged with driving under the influence, vehicular homicide, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane in the Dec. 29 crash that killed 25-year-old Kali Dobson.

CANTON, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia man is facing charges in a crash that killed his newlywed wife as they drove back from their wedding reception.

Georgia State Patrol officials say 28-year-old Ryan Quinton is charged with driving under the influence, vehicular homicide, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane in the Dec. 29 crash that killed 25-year-old Kali Dobson. Authorities say Quinton's blood-alcohol level was 0.114. Georgia's legal limit to drive is .08 percent.

Cherokee County sheriff's Lt. Jay Baker says Quinton was released from jail on $25,000 bond Wednesday night.

Officials have said Quinton was trying to avoid hitting a dog and Dobson was ejected from the vehicle when it veered off the road.

Chris Thomas said that he was driving down the road when a bloodied man in a torn shirt came up and asked for help.

"At the road, there was a very steep embankment going down and at the bottom of the embankment, I could see the car," Thomas said. "When I saw that car with the 'Just Married' in the back window, that's when it just hit that...this is the most God-awful ending to a wonderful day that I could have ever imagined for anybody."
