ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) -- The teenaged driver in a May crash that killed two teens in Antigo had blood alcohol content close to three times the legal limit.
Reports say Monday that the Department of Transportation says 18-year-old Jeffrey Smith had a blood alcohol content of .218 at the time of the May 28 crash. The legal limit for driving is .08.
Smith and an 18-year-old passenger, Jacob Arrowood, were thrown from the car and killed. Two other teens in the car were critically hurt while a fifth teenager sustained minor injuries.
Authorities said Smith failed to stop at an intersection and collided with a van. Two people in the van were not seriously injured.
The Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating where the teens got the alcohol.
