SANTA FE — Toxicology results show a man who caused a head-on crash last month on Interstate 25 had a blood-alcohol level that was more than five times the legal drinking limit.

The Office of the Medical Investigator has released toxicology results showing 28-year-old Cecilio Jaramillo of Santa Fe had a blood-alcohol level of 0.44 percent at the time of the crash near San Juan. Jaramillo has ties to Las Vegas.

The state's presumed level of intoxication is 0.08 percent.

Jaramillo was killed in the March 23 crash, as was the other driver, 18-year-old Mariah Arguello, a University of New Mexico student from Las Vegas.

Jaramillo was driving the wrong way on the interstate.
