Police inquiring into a double fatal crash at Urunga last month have revealed the driver of a utility, who was killed in the crash, had a high-range blood alcohol concentration of 0.245 – almost five times the legal limit.
Investigators have found no evidence to suggest speed was a factor in the fatal crash.
About 5am on Sunday 8 January, a southbound b-double truck collided with a Holden Commodore utility, which was travelling north in the southbound lanes, 27km south of Coffs Harbour.
The truck then ran off the road and slammed into a house.
The utility driver, 38-year-old David Levett from Nambucca Heads, died at the scene.
Eleven-year-old Penrith boy, Max McGregor, was killed when the truck crashed into a room of a house in which he was sleeping.
The truck driver, a 51-year-old Queensland man, and his male passenger were taken by NSW Ambulance paramedics to Coffs Harbour Hospital for treatment.
Police are continuing their inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the incident and ask that anyone who witnessed the crash or circumstances leading up to it and has not already spoken with police call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
