Kali Dobson Dies In Car Crash While Driving Away From Her Wedding Reception

When Kali Dobson was married on Sunday, it was supposed to be the best day of her life.

Instead, she died a few hours later when her new husband Ryan Quinton, veered the Pontiac Firebird he was driving off the road and rolled down an embankment Sunday evening.

Dobson, 25, of Ball Ground, Ga., was thrown out of the car, and ended up trapped when it came to rest on top of her, according to Canton Georgia Patch.

Georgia State Police investigators said Quinton, 27, told them the accident happened when he swerved to avoid hitting a dog in the road.

After the accident, he tried to wave down help by the side of the road, according to Chris Thomas, who was the first person to pull over and help.

"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," Thomas told WSB-TV. "There was nothing that could be done. The car was on top of her. You couldn't even see her."

The accident is under investigation but charges may be filed against Quinton, if the results of a blood test determine alcohol was a factor, the Ledger News reported.
