ORIGINAL STORY

The husband of the new bride who was killed in an automobile crash after their wedding reception has been charged in connection to the fatal accident.

The Georgia State Patrol has charged Ryan Quinton, 28, with laying drags, DUI, weaving over roadway, reckless driving and vehicular homicide.

Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said warrants were taken out on Monday and Quinton, who resides in Jasper, turned himself into the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center on Wednesday.

He was subsequently released Wednesday night on a $25,000 bond, said Cherokee Sheriff's Office Spokesman Lt. Jay Baker.

The Quintons were leaving The Wheeler House where they'd just celebrated their wedding when the husband told authorities he tried to avoid hitting a dog in the roadway along Highway 5 in Ball Ground when he lost control of the vehicle, according to the Georgia State Patrol. 

The car, a Pontiac Firebird, traveled off the road, overturned and ejected Kali Quinton before it came to rest with the woman trapped under the vehicle.

She died at the scene of the accident while Quinton was transported to Northside Hospital-Cherokee where he was treated for his injuries.
