Toxicology report reveals driver of fatal crash was over limit
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Toxicology reports have revealed the driver of a deadly crash was twice the legal limit when she struck and killed two men in Fort Lauderdale, back in June.
Alyza Russell, 22, stands accused of being drunk when she was involved in a deadly crash. Toxicology reports released on Wednesday, confirmed Russell was over the legal limit at the time of the accident.
Broward County Judge John Hurley: "Count one: $150,000. Count two: $50,000. County three: $150,000. County four: $50,000. County five: $25,000. Count six will be $25,000."
Russell: "What does that mean? My parents have to pay $450,000 tonight?"
Tests revealed Russell's blood alcohol level was at 0.17, when she lost control of her Porsche and plowed into two men, along Southwest Fifth Avenue, near Broward Boulevard. "Ms. Russell's blood alcohol level was .17 that is a little over double the legal limit of .08," said Broward County Sheriff's Office Detective Deanna Greenlaw.
Russell turned herself in Wednesday morning and now faces multiple charges, including two counts of DUI manslaughter and DUI property damage.
Her bond has been set to $450,000. If she bonds out, she will not be allowed to leave the country.
