Toxicology test results confirm that an Eagle Mountain woman was intoxicated when she caused a July 21 crash on State Road 73 in Utah County that killed both her and a teenage girl.
Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Erik Knutzen said Monday that 28-year-old Ashley Taft Bailey’s blood alcohol level tested at 0.15, or nearly twice the legal limit for driving of 0.08.
Earlier, deputies reported having found an open bottle of alcohol in the eastbound Ford Fusion Bailey was driving when it crossed the center line and collided with a Chevrolet Cruze near mile marker 31.
A passenger in the Cruze, 15-year-old Catherine Hancock, also of Eagle Mountain, died at the scene of the crash.
Bailey was taken to the hospital, where she died a few hours after the accident.
