Raleigh, N.C. — A Millbrook High School student killed three weeks ago in a north Raleigh wreck was legally drunk, according to a toxicology report released Monday.
Elizabeth Molloy, 17, died on Jan. 7 when the Jeep she was riding in went out of control on Rainwater Road and slammed into a tree.
Molloy had a blood-alcohol content of 0.12, according to the toxicology report. Under North Carolina law, a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 is enough to be considered impaired.
The driver of the Jeep, Garrett Prince, 16, of 11004 Coachman's Way, has been charged with felony death by motor vehicle, driving while impaired, provisional DWI, careless and reckless driving, having an open container of liquor, speeding and possession of marijuana.
Four other people also have been charged in the case.
Authorities say Hannah R. Smith, 18, of 8617 Hawksmoor Drive, hosted an underage drinking party that Molloy and Prince attended; Anthony Du Juan Geter, 21, of 7101 Sandy Forks Road, Apt. 3A, bought two bottles of rum for a group of teens; and Samantha M. McKinney, 17, of Raleigh, and an unidentified 15-year-old helped buy the liquor.
Prince, Smith and McKinney are all Millbrook High students.
A wreck report states that the Jeep was traveling 75 mph in a 30-mph zone when it crashed into a tree on Rainwater Road.
