CANTON, Ga. (AP) -- A Cherokee County man is facing charges in a late-December crash that killed his newlywed wife as they were driving back from their wedding reception.

Lt. Jay Baker says Georgia State Patrol has charged 28-year-old Ryan Quinton with driving under the influence, vehicular homicide, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane in the death of 25-year-old Kali Dobson. Baker says Quinton was released from the county jail on $25,000 bond on Wednesday night.

Officials have said Quinton was trying to avoid hitting a dog when the crash happened, and his wife was ejected from the vehicle when it veered off the road.

It's unclear if Quinton has an attorney and a message left at a number listed for him wasn't immediately returned.

BALL GROUND, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia State Patrol officials say a newlywed bride was killed in a crash hours after her wedding reception in north Georgia.

State patrol officials told WSB-TV that Kali Dobson was thrown from a car Sunday night in Ball Ground after the car she and her husband were riding in rolled into an embankment.

A neighbor, Chris Thomas, says the groom was stumbling up the road with a bloodied, torn shirt after the crash. Thomas says he called 911 and tried comforting the man with a prayer while they waited for emergency responders to arrive.

Investigators have said the groom told them he swerved to miss a dog that ran into the road. Authorities say they'll conduct a blood test to determine whether any charges will be filed.
