Alcohol likely involved in crash

October 18, 2004

Valdosta - State troopers say alcohol was likely involved in a crash that killed a teenager over the weekend.

Nineteen-year-old Zachary Karr of Valdosta was driving his Dodge Durango south on Val-Tech road Saturday afternoon when he lost control and side swiped another vehicle.

He then ran into the back of a car in front of him before attempting to turn onto Highway 133. When he tried to take the turn he lost control and flipped.

Karr was not wearing his seat belt and was partially ejected.

Troopers found alcohol in the vehicle, but are still waiting on toxicology reports to be sure if Karr was drinking.
