MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 32-year-old man who died last month when he drove the wrong way on Interstate 94 and crashed into a car had a blood-alcohol content that more than three times the legal limit.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office says Marcos Cortez of Wauwatosa had a blood alcohol level of .282. The legal limit in Wisconsin is .08.

Authorities say Cortez entered the freeway on the night of Jan. 23 and was travelling westbound in the eastbound lanes without headlights on when he crashed into another car.

Cortez was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from his car. He died at the scene.

Four other vehicles were involved in secondary crashes and a total of five people were injured.
