CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.- A new, 79-page homicide report shows the woman killed in a crash on I-75 in Charlotte Harbor in August of 2012 was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time.
The Florida Highway Patrol report shows Melanie Beattie crashed her car into the Peace River Bridge and then, sprawled out on the highway, before five vehicles accidentally ran over her.
A witness saw her husband's van against the northbound barrier wall of the bridge around 1:30 a.m. Beattie was struck by the first vehicle around 4:30 a.m.
The report says Beattie called her husband, who was in Minnesota on business, at 10:00 p.m., the night before the accident. He said she hung up on him, but before doing so, she said she was going home, which he took to mean Michigan.
The toxicology report showed Beattie's blood alcohol registered at .145
