Minor Driver Was Legally Drunk and Under Marijuana Influence Prior to Fatal Beltway Crash | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Bl

5 stars

Drunk driving contributed to a graduation day auto accident that killed four local teenagers on June 14th, according to a new Washington Post report.  A half-empty gallon of vodka, a six-pack of beer and a small amount of marijuana had previously been recovered from the Interstate 395 accident scene by police.  Recently released toxicology results confirm that the driver was legally drunk and under the influence of marijuana at the time of the accident, when she apparently steered her Volkswagen and four passengers into the path of a tractor trailer on a highway ramp, killing all but one.  Police are trying to determine how the minors obtained their alcohol.  According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, young drivers are less likely than adults to drive after drinking alcohol, but are substantially more likely to be involved in an accident when they do.
