A Texas woman died Friday afternoon after being hit by a non-impaired driver who was taking a breathalyzer test while operating his vehicle.
Alexis Butler, 18, was backing her car out of a driveway on Nov. 10 when the passenger side of her car was hit by a pickup truck, KXAS reported.
An investigation by the Arlington Police Department didn’t find any track marks from the 31-year-old unidentified driver on the road that would indicate he tried to stop the car.
The driver reportedly told police that he couldn’t see Butler’s car because his eyes were off the road while performing a breathalyzer test on a court-ordered device “for three to four seconds.” Police said he was non-impaired at the time.
The ignition interlock device prevents a vehicle from starting if the driver is found to have been drinking. (Read more from “Woman Killed After Non-Impaired Driver Taking Breathalyzer Test Hits Her” HERE)
