A groom was killed in an ATV crash in New York on Saturday night, just hours after getting married in Connecticut.

Nicholas Hoag, 25, of Wingdale, N.Y., died late Saturday night in Dover Plains, N.Y., the Journal News reports.

Earlier in the day, he and Amber Sartori, a 22-year-old nurse at the Putnam Valley Hospital Center, had gotten married at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Sherman.

After the wedding, he was a passenger in a utility terrain vehicle that struck a tree and overturned, pinning him underneath.

He was transported to New Milford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, LoHud.com reports. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to his head, chest and abdomen.

His brother was charged with driving while intoxicated, police said.

The bride’s father, Michael Sartori called the tragedy a "living nightmare."

The groom's brother was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The paper says a call placed to their parents was not answered.
