Police say both alcohol and drugs played a role in the crash on State Road 23, that killed a teen hours before graduation nearly two weeks ago.
In the early morning hours of June 3, 18-year-old James Reeder was driving on State Road 23, near Adams, when his pickup crossed the center line and hit a semi head on.
The semi's cab caught fire, but the driver was able to escape with only minor injuries. Reeder was declared dead at the scene.
Toxicology results show Reeder had marijuana in his system and a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. Due to the ongoing investigation, police are yet not releasing the exact figure.
Reeder had been arrested for alcohol violations in the past. On March 14, police say he was arrested for possession of alcohol. Then on May 20, he was arrested for drinking and driving. Those charges were all dropped.
Reeder was a standout student at Lawrence High School in Michigan, where he was supposed to graduate with high honors the day of the crash.
