BALL GROUND, Ga. — 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.

Just my opinion. If I was to

Just my opinion. If I was to bet, that's all I'm saying. "Rude" can be the truth sometimes. Let's see what the official report says. "Officer, I swerved to miss a dog on the road and now my new wife is dead, I know it's just minutes after leaving my own reception and I didn't have anything to drink". I blamed a dog once on eating my homework, but I was just 9 years old and I didn't kill anybody- it was just a homework assignment. He could have told the cops a space alien stepped in front of his car and they would have probably believed him more. Just man up dude, take responsibility and say your stupidity killed your brand new wife. I have been to LOTS AND LOTS of weddings and receptions in my life and NEVER ONCE has the groom gotten into the drivers seat and driven off with his new bride. hmmmmmmmmmm..... There must be a reason why. Once the tox screen is published, will you apologize to me? Maybe my rudeness might save someone's life who reads this. He killed her. He didn't love her all that much. And he cowardly made up a story about a dog. He's going to jail after he gets out of the hospital. I'll just wait for your apology, sugarbutton, once the final report is published.

The saddest part of this very

The saddest part of this very sad story, is that she was thrown from the vehicle. In most instances that is for lack of wearing a seatbelt. A preventable tragedy most of the time.
