VERSAILLES, Ind. -- A man who drove into the path of a semi, killing himself, his girlfriend and her daughter, had a blood-alcohol content of more than twice the legal limit, lab results showed.

Andre Devant and Maggie Guinn, both 31, and Aaliyah, 3, spent the night of April 4 having dinner with Guinn's family in Ripley County, Devant's brother said.

Driving home to Cincinnati around 1:30 a.m. April 5, Devant disregarded a stop sign and collided with a semitractor-trailer at the intersection of CR 300W and U.S. Route 50, according to Indiana State Police. The young family was killed.

Toxicology results found Devant was intoxicated, with a BAC of 0.19 percent; he also tested positive for marijuana, ISP said.

 

The semi's driver, Alexander Benge, 37, was taken to a hospital for treatment. His toxicology results are still pending, ISP said.
