FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Toxicology results show former major leaguer Jim Leyritz's blood-alcohol levels were nearly twice the legal limit the day he was involved in a fatal crash in Fort Lauderdale.
Leyritz was initially charged last month with DUI manslaughter and DUI property damage after the crash. But the Fort Lauderdale Police Department says he will now face an additional manslaughter charge.
Police say Leyritz's 2006 Ford Expedition crashed at an intersection and collided with the car of Fredia Ann Veitch.
Veitch was ejected from her vehicle and died at a hospital.
