The driver in a crash was intoxicated when he sped through a red light at Jensen Beach Avenue and Hobe Sound Martin County, according to court records.
The Martin County Sheriff Office wrote that a doctor at St. Mary’s Medical Center said the 28-year-old’s blood was 150, which he explained as him having a .15 blood-alcohol level. That is nearly twice the legal limit that a driver’s blood-alcohol level can be in Florida.
The driver will not face charges in the crash that left six people seriously injured. The Martin County police department say their investigation remains open, although the search warrant indicates he is being investigated on DUI charges. They suspect his speed was a factor in the crash as well, according to the warrant.
The 28-year-old could not immediately be reached for comment.
Police say the Wellington resident was driving a Nissan Altima north on Jensen Beach shortly when he drove through a red light at the intersection with Hobe Sound and slammed into a Toyota Camry that was turning left. FHP said, five people were critically injured, according to the Florida Highway Patrol Department.
