Blood test shows:
Driver in fatal wreck was drunk
By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND
Kory Hudgins had a blood alcohol count of over .IO when his car crossed the IH-35 median when he was involved in the March 30 accident that killed him, Gracie Villarreal and Margarita Espinoza.
The count was high enough for him to have been charged with driving while intoxicated, said New Braunfels
Police Lieutenant John E. Wommack.
Hudgins’ blood was sent to the Travis County Coroner’s office for testing. The tests also showed traces of other drugs in his system, Wommack said. “I still don’t know why he made that abrupt left turn and crossed the median,” he said.
More clues to the cause of the accident may come from the only survivor, Robert Ryan McNeill, who is still in critical condition.
i still don’t know why he made that abrupt left turn and crossed the median.’
— New Braunfels Police Lieutenant John E. Wommack
