The crash report involving Rep. Quentin Williams released by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection is more than 300 pages long.
According to the report, Williams had a Blood Alcohol Concentration of .159 and Kimede Mustafaj, who was driving the wrong way, had a BAC of .137.
"We're all adults and we expect people to act responsibly, and we continue to remind people who are not immune to the same things that happen outside of this building," said state Rep. Matt Ritter.
Williams was driving home from Gov. Ned Lamont's inaugural ball in January when he was struck by Mustafaj.
State police had received several calls of a reported wrong-way driver on Route 9 and were told the driver had crashed head-on into another vehicle.
According to the crash report, Williams' Infiniti was engulfed in flames, he was severely burned and left unrecognizable.
"Q Williams was a hero to a lot of folks in this state and his death was in an enormous tragedy and I think that should 100% of our focus," said Gov. Ned Lamont.
Mustafaj also died at the scene.
According to the report, Williams' cause of death was blunt impact injury to head and torso. Both deaths were ruled an accident.
The toxicology report also reveals both had THC in their system, however, that does not mean they were high at the time of the crash.
