The driver in a horrible crash was intoxicated when he sped through a red light at Jensen Beach Avenue and Hobe Sound in Martin County, according to court records.
Police say the Wellington resident was driving a Nissan Altima north on Jensen Beach 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. Two people were unconscious while four others were left with injuries.
In a search warrant filed for medical records, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office wrote that a doctor at St. Mary’s Medical Center said the 32-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 does not face charges in the crash that left himself and three others seriously injured. The Martin County police department say their investigation remains open, although the search warrant indicates he is being investigated for DUI charges. They suspect his speed was a factor in the crash as well, according to the warrant.
The 32-year-old could not immediately be reached for comment.
