The death of Brown occurred because the driver, Brent, was intoxicated. Today, a report has come out that Brent’s blood-alcohol level was listed at 0.189 which is more than double the legal limit. Initially, on the scene, Brent refused to take an alcohol test. He was only tested after he no longer had the option to say no when Brown had died. That means that some time had passed before Brent’s alcohol level was tested. Brent’s blood-alcohol level was most likely well above 0.20 when he was driving the Mercedes. CBSNews, has more on the accident: According to the document, Brent had no proof of insurance in the car. The report also shows Brent had an expired and suspended Illinois driver’s license. An accident investigator says Brent “was intoxicated, speeding over the limit, and failed to drive in a single lane.” The report says while traveling on the 114 service road, Brent hit the right curb, causing him to lose control. Then he steered to the left and back to the right over-correcting, causing him to slide out of control into the right curb, then slide into a ditch, overturn, and slide on the roof back onto the roadway, where the Mercedes came to a stop.   The post Josh Brent’s official blood alcohol level comes in at 0.189 percent appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
