(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Toxicology reports show the woman driving a SUV that crashed into the Mississippi River last month had a blood alcohol content twice the legal limit.

The Winona County Sheriff says the BAC of 36-year-old Christina Lee Hauser was .16. The legal limit is .08.

As we've reported, Hauser failed to make a curve and landed in the Mississippi River in Winona last month. She died, as did three men who were riding with her.
