The driver in a March 19 car accident that killed a 19-year-old Kenyon man was intoxicated, the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office reported.
The results of a urine analysis examination for Chad Lexvold, 19, were released Tuesday and showed he had a blood alcohol concentration of .18 at the time of the crash, .10 more than the legal limit for driving.
Jacob Baalson, 19, of Kenyon was killed in the crash.
Lexvold was driving a Ford Windstar traveling on County Road 30 near 50th Avenue in Goodhue County when the vehicle left the road and rolled at about 2:15 a.m. Both Baalson and Lexvold were partially ejected from the vehicle.
Also injured in the crash were Nicole Groth, 17, of Zumbrota, and Luke Trevis, 18, of Nerstrand.
Initially, authorities said it was unclear who was driving the vehicle, but after investigation, named Lexvold as the driver.
Reports pertaining to the accident have been sent to the Goodhue County Attorney's Office for review, the sheriff's office reported.
