Jul. 26, 2017
PHOENIX (AP) — Officials say an Arizona driver who killed himself and two sisters in a wrong-way crash had a blood-alcohol level three times over the legal limit during the collision.
The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/2v8wOyP ) the Maricopa County Office of the Medical Examiner found that 21-year-old Keaton Allison's BAC level was 0.25 percent, high enough to qualify as "severe impairment."
According to an Arizona Department of Public Safety report, Allison had been driving 15 mph over the speed limit without headlights. He had almost hit another car before crashed head-on with the vehicle that Karli and Kelsey Richardson were travelling in in April.
A toxicology report shows that neither sister had any drugs or alcohol in their system at the time of the crash.
