Report: Corrales Was Drunk When He Crashed
Las Vegas Police released a statement yesterday stating that Diego Corrales had more than three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system when he crashed his motorcycle and died.
“It’s quite possible that had he not been impaired, he could have prevented his accident,” Las Vegas police Sgt. Tracy McDonald said after toxicology tests showed Corrales’ blood-alcohol content was 0.25 percent. The legal limit for drivers in Nevada is 0.08 percent.
“Bottom line, no one else did anything wrong,” McDonald said of an investigation that found speed was a factor and no drugs were in Corrales’ system when he died May 7 at age 29. “He basically killed himself.”
The Las Vegas Department of Motor Vehicles also said that Corrales had a history of driving drunk and was riding the motorcycle without a valid license.
