TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - An autopsy report says a driver was drunk in a crash that killed him and a 13-month-old girl.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1qcxsxK ) reports that Shawnee County District Court Clerk Angela Callahan’s office released the autopsy report Friday at the newspaper’s request. It says 33-year-old Brian Lee Riley, of Topeka, had a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit when the car he was driving struck a culvert and rolled. The crash happened in March as Riley was returning from an auto parts store.

Riley died at the scene, and 13 -month-old Kylynn Gunter died nine days later. She was in a child safety seat, but didn’t appear to have been properly restrained.

The girl’s 12-year-old sister survived. Authorities said Riley was an acquaintance of the children’s mother.
