Man Killed In Wreck With State Legislator Was Legally Drunk

The Winston-Salem man killed in a wreck that seriously injured a state legislator had a blood alcohol content that was more than three times the legal limit for driving in North Carolina.

Winston-Salem police said in a report updated Wednesday that 54-year-old David Carmichael had a blood alcohol content of 0.29 percent when he was killed in the wreck December 2.

State Rep. Larry Womble remains in serious condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Police said he had no alcohol in his system.

Police said previously that the 70-year-old Womble crossed the center line of a street and collided head-on with Carmichael's vehicle.

Womble is a Democrat serving his ninth term representing Forsyth County.
