A Queens motorcycle driver and his passenger were killed last week after colliding with a drunk driver who ran a stop sign. The driver was taken into custody with twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system, according to the Daily News.
The SUV driver’s exact BAC was not reported by the News. In New York State, the threshold for DWI is a blood alcohol content of .08. When the BAC reaches .18, this constitutes aggravated DWI. In this case, because other motorists were killed, the driver of the SUV could be facing vehicular manslaughter charges in addition to the DWI.
