The driver involved in a Kalamazoo-area wrong-way crash had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit at the time of impact.

Three people were killed, including 59-year-old Mark Witsaman, and two others injured in the crash Friday, March 3, at U.S. 131 and Stadium Drive. Witsaman's blood-alcohol level was .21 percent, according to a Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department news release.

The Michigan legal limit is .08 percent. A person with a BAC at .17 percent or higher is considered "super drunk."

Witsaman got on U.S. 131 using the wrong ramp, with 88-year-old Elma Witsaman as his passenger. Their car crashed into a pick-up truck, with with 57-year-old Victoria Mitchell, 56-year-old William Mitchell and 20-year-old Brent Mitchell inside.

The two Witsamans and Victoria Mitchell died at the scene.
