Alice Gruppioni, 32, from Genoa, Italy, (pictured with her husband Christian Casadei left) died after being hit by a driver who deliberately smashed onto the Venice Beach boardwalk on Saturday.
Married just two weeks ago, Gruppioni and her husband, Christian Casadei were in California for their honeymoon, which was a trip across the United States.
'It's a tragedy. There's nothing more to say,' Casadei told the Italian news agency ANSA.
'We were walking, we were happy, we were on our honeymoon and everything, and suddenly everything changed.
'I still can't believe it, and I don't even remember exactly what happened. It's all very confusing.'
Gruppioni is the daughter of Valerio Gruppioni, who is the president of Group Sira, which is based in Bologna.
The successful businessman was a one-time president of Bologna FC, a top-flight Italy soccer team and the club confirmed her death in a statement offering condolences to the Gruppioni family.

Today, authorities announced a suspect, Nathan Louis Campbell, 38, was in custody in connection with the horror hit-and-run after he handed himself in. He has been booked into the LA County Jail on a murder charge on $1 million bail.
One of the 11 people injured by the crazed driver is in critical condition and two others are seriously injured, according to officials. The remaining eight sustained at least minor injuries and a four-year-old child is among the injured, according to reports.
