Alcohol factor in car crash that killed 3 airmen

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — Alamogordo police say the driver in a single-vehicle rollover accident last January that killed three Holloman Air Force Base airmen had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit.

The Alamogordo Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/SN8aMz) Tuesday that an autopsy report indicates 26-year-old Ryan Nicholas Loehr had blood alcohol concentrations of .14 and .15 percent, more than twice New Mexico’s 0.08 limit.

Investigators say speed also played a role in the accident.

Authorities say Loehr, 21-year-old Deshon Maurice Wartley and 19-year-old Lamont Keith Cullars were riding in a 2006 Honda Civic on Jan. 20. They say the Honda rolled over several times at a sharp curve.

All three died from blunt force injuries, according to medical investigators.

They were attached to a remotely piloted aircraft squadron at Holloman.
