State Rep. Quentin Williams was legally intoxicated when he was killed by a wrong-way driver in January, according to Connecticut House Speaker Matt Ritter.
Ritter's office says an upcoming crash report indicates Williams was above the legal blood alcohol limit.
“I was notified by the Commissioner of Public Safety that the report on Q Williams’ death would be coming out and that it would indicate that Rep. Williams was over the legal limit," Ritter said in a statement. "It goes without saying everybody should follow the law, but in no way does it diminish the way we feel about Q, or his legacy.”
News 12 has obtained a portion of the crash report which shows the driver at fault was also legally drunk and had drugs in her system.
The crash happened after Williams left Gov. Ned Lamont's inaugural ball.
