ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say the driver blamed for a November car crash that killed three people had a blood-alcohol level almost twice the legal limit.

Jacob Jaramillo faces charges of vehicular homicide and other crimes in the Nov. 29 crash that killed three victims - all in their 20s. Two died at the scene of the crash near the intersection of Insterstate-25 and I-40 in Albuquerque. One person died at the hospital.

Officer Tanner Tixier said Thursday that the toxicology results for Jaramillo have been analyzed, and investigators found that his blood alcohol concentration at the time of the crash was .15.

According to police, Jamarillo ran a red light and hit the other vehicle, which rolled onto its roof with the three victims inside.

Jaramillo sustained non-life threatening injuries.
