Inhalant Abuse Caused Fatal Virginia Crash

Via NBC29.com in Virginia:

Blood tests have been released that show inhalant abuse was a contributing factor in a May 12, 2010 car crash on Afton Mountain in Virginia. The Medical Examiner’s office confirmed the presence of difluroethane in the blood system of the 29 year old driver.

The 29 year old was behind the wheel of a 1996 Buick Century when he passed out, causing the car to run off the road and through the median, where it struck a 2007 Toyota Corolla head on. The driver of the Buick and the 71 year old passenger in the front seat of the Toyota were killed.
