Report: Woman Who Died In SUV Plunge Legally Drunk

SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) — A coroner’s report says a 24-year-old woman who died when her sport utility vehicle plunged into Lake Superior had a blood-alcohol content more than three times the legal limit.

Superior police say that according to the forensic pathologist, Ashley Ganyo had a blood-alcohol content of 0.249 percent. Wisconsin’s legal driving limit is 0.08 percent.

Ganyo was found seat-belted in the driver’s seat of an SUV off a boat landing on Dec. 4. A preliminary autopsy report found her drowned.

Ganyo had recently graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth and was still living in the Duluth area.

Additional toxicology results are expected to take a number of weeks.

    Wow. A college grad. .25 BAC. I’m just glad that she didn’t take out anybody else.

    I suspect a large percent of serious DWI’s and such are educated people. Not sure why you felt the need to say what you did as you did – care to explain it?
    And yes indeed – thank God she did not do an Amy Senser and kill someone. What’s tragic is Senser herself lives to drink and be merry on the Holidays but the victim is not.
