FORT MYERS, Fla.- New court documents related to the May dragging death of a motorcylist in Estero show both the victim and the driver who allegedly hit him were drunk.
Donna Brown, 55 is charged with DUI Manslaughter in the death of Carl "Ed" Patrick. Brown was making a U-turn when she struck Patrick, ran him over, and dragged him for miles down U.S. 41, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Toxicology reports show Brown had marijuana in her system and a blood alcohol level of .219.
Reports show Patrick's blood alcohol level was even higher at .285, more than three times the legal limit in Florida. Patrick also tested positive for cocaine.
Witnesses who called 911 saw the crash. One described seeing law enforcement officers extinguish flames coming from the undercarriage of Brown's SUV and the pinned motorcycle.
The witness also said, "brown didn't seem overly concerned to get out of the flaming SUV."
The documents also show Brown failed several categories on the Florida Highway Patrol's DUI Detection sheet.
WINK News previously reported Brown was wearing sunglasses at the time of her arrest. Officers at the time noted she smelled of alcohol.
The report also says Brown was placed on suicide watch following her arrest, after she made comments that concerned troopers.
Brown has pleaded not guilty to DUI Manslaughter and leaving the scene of a deadly accident. She's currently out on bond.
