Forensic specialists, however, speculate that his BAC may have been higher at the time of the accident.
Man who crashed into limo of bridesmaids had BAC below legal limit
Steven Romeo, 55, had a legal BAC when he crashed into bridesmaids' limo.
Steven Romeo, the 55-year-old man who t-boned a limo carrying four bridesmaids last weekend was not legally drunk, according to blood tests performed two hours after the accident.
The fatal crash took the lives of four women who were celebrating a birthday party.
NBC New York reports that blood tests were delayed “as emergency responders focused on trying to save the lives of the eight women in the limousine and the limo driver, as is common in such complex accident situations.”
The legal BAC limit is .08 and the driver tested at .066. The driver reportedly told police that he had consumed some beers before driving.
As Metro previously reported this is not Romeo's first fatal accident. He is currently involved in a suit regarding the death of his emoloyee Andrew Leone.
