New information has been released from a deadly wrong-way crash that happened back in July, showing the driver was well above the legal limit for alcohol.  

A DPS report released 122 days after the incident revealed that 29-year-old Rulon Beazer had a blood alcohol content between 0.31 and 0.32.

The report also stated that a friend of Beazer's told investigators the man had been drinking for several hours at a nearby Twin Peaks restaurant.  

Beazer was killed after he slammed head-on with another car in the southbound lanes of the Loop 101 near Shea Boulevard. Beazer was driving northbound

Arizona State liquor laws state it's unlawful for establishments or bartenders to serve someone who's obviously drunk.

ABC15 tried to speak with the manager of the restaurant about the night in question, but we were told they couldn't comment.

We asked if that's because of any on-going civil or criminal investigation into their restaurant, and we were told they had no knowledge of any on-going case.
