Danika Worthington azcentral.com The blood-alcohol level of a wrong-way driver was three times the legal limit when he killed himself and an off-duty Mesa police officer in a head-on collision earlier this week on a Valley freeway, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Officer Carrick Cook, a DPS spokesman, said Thursday that Raul Silva-Corona's blood-alcohol content was .24 percent. A driver is presumed to be legally drunk in Arizona at .08 percent.

Mendoza, 32, had just finished a patrol shift and was driving toward his Phoenix home when he was killed. to read more: azcentral.com
