A spokesperson for the Georgia State Patrol said charges are pending against a 27-year-old newlywed whose wife was killed Sunday in a wreck.

“The crash is still under investigation. Blood was drawn to determine if alcohol was a contributing factor,” GSP spokesperson Franka Young said.

Ryan Quinton, of Jasper, and his wife, Kali Dobson, had just left their wedding venue in Ball Ground when the accident occurred, Young confirmed.

GSP authorities said Quinton was traveling north on Ga. 5 at 8:30 p.m., Dec. 29, when he lost control of his Pontiac Firebird. Quinton reportedly told troopers that he was attempting to avoid a dog in the roadway when he lost control.

The Firebird reportedly overturned after traveling off the roadway, ejecting Dobson, 25, of Ball Ground. Young said Dobson was trapped under the vehicle when it came to a rest.

Dobson was pronounced dead at the scene, and Quinton was transported to Northside Hospital-Cherokee for treatment, Young said.

What I got from this article is, at best, tautological reasoning that we can reduce the number of opiate overdoses with a laissez-faire approach…
