CHP Says Chico State Student In Fatal SoCal Crash Was Very Drunk

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Investigators say the California driver of a car that flipped, killing two passengers, had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal driving limit.

   San Luis Obispo County prosecutors say 21-year-old Evan Alexander Green, a Chico State University student, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, drunken driving and driving without a license.

   The California Highway Patrol says Green lost control of his 2004 Saturn automobile early Friday and rolled his car on an Avila Beach roadway, killing 21-year-old Marcus Alex Nelson of Castro Valley and 21-year-old Aaron Beaver of Eureka.

   The San Luis Obispo County Tribune says two tests showed Green’s blood-alcohol levels were 0.245 and 0.232 percent. California’s legal limit for driving is 0.08.

   Green is free on $150,000 bail pending a July 11 hearing.

    I can not stand drunk drivers, this should never had happened, people need to NOT drive while drinking period! R.I.P. to Marcus & Aaron, I feel bad for their loved ones!

    They were all probably hammered… but, once again, the drunk driver survives. Maybe it’s God’s way of punishing him… having to live with killing your two best friends because of supidity.

  • Oh no

    Why is this murdering drunk OUT ON BAIL, you know what he is going to do.

    • Linda

      Because this Country is still very lax on drunk drivers. Probably because all of the ones in charge of making the rules drive drunk themselves.

    So Sad this happened. Is he is here legally? Did the car really flip or just roll over? Flip is dramatic.

    • Reality

      Are you here legally? Did your ancestors come here legally? What does your comment have to do with anything? Turn off Rush Limpbaugh and FOX news.

    I dont understand why he is out on bail? he pleaded no comment, start his punishment! Maybe this is why CA is in the fiscal environment as it is, they wait and waste taxpayer dollars to bring these idiots back to court thus costing money.

    Also, he has committed a heinous crime. even if he was given the death penalty, he would not replace the two lives lost. Such a trragedy, a night of fun for three people turns in to a hellish nighmare for three families. Please dont drink and drive, if you have people at your house drinking, let them stay the night, offer a place on the floor, get them a cab, let them sleep in your yard even, but please do not let them drive.
