Driver in crash that killed Philip Lutzenkirchen legally drunk, according to toxicology report
Joseph Ian Davis, the driver of the car that Philip Lutzenkirchen was in when he died on June 30, was legally drunk, as reported by AL.com.
A toxicology report released Wednesday by Georgia State Police showed that Davis’ blood-alcohol level was 0.17, twice the legal limit in Georgia.
Lutzenkirchen was sitting in the back seat when Davis failed to stop at a T-intersection in Troup County, outside of LaGrange, Georgia. The car hit two ditches and travelled some 90 feet before coming to a stop. Lutzenkirchen was thrown out of the car and died on the scene.
Lutzenkirchen’s blood-alcohol level was 0.377, more than four times the legal limit.
