The tragic Nick Adenhart situation just gets sadder, as the Orange County Weekly has obtained autopsy reports that show that Courtney Stewart, the woman who was driving the car in which Adenhart was driving, was drunk.
However, I obtained a copy of a toxicological report this morning showing that Courtney Stewart was also driving while intoxicated, with a blood alcohol content of .16 percent, twice the legal limit assuming that Stewart, who was 20, was allowed to drink. The legal limit for underage drivers is actually .01 percent, meaning that Stewart was 16 times drunker than the law allows.
Andrew Gallo, the driver of the other car, was drunk and driving with a suspended license due to a DUI (and apparently ran a red light), but I can't imagine this helps the prosecutor's case for the strictest of punishments.
I know we've got a lot of lawyers on this blog; anyone know what this could do to the case against Gallo?
