BRENTWOOD, TN – Court records show that a woman had a blood alcohol level over twice the state’s legal limit when she got into an accident that killed a Brentwood police officer, according to a report by wsmv.com.
This is an update to a previous story.
The driver, 24-year-old Ashley Biance Ruth Kroese of Thompson’s Station, crossed the center line on Franklin Road in Brentwood on June 18 and hit a police car driven by Officer Destin Legieza. Legieza, who had been heading back to his precinct after an overnight shift, was pronounced dead at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Kroese has been charged with vehicular homicide. Her blood was drawn upon request by the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and showed a level of 0.166. Tennessee’s legal limit is 0.08. Footage from a traffic camera showed her driving north in the southbound lanes of Franklin Road without any headlights, authorities said.
Kroese was released from the hospital Sunday and was subsequently arrested. Bond was set at $750,000 when she appeared in court on Monday.
