In late June the Auburn family lost 23-year old Philip Lutzenkirchen, a tight end and major contributor on the 2010 national championship winning team in a terrible auto accident and it now appears we know why.

The toxicology reports of both Lutzenkirchen and driver, Joseph Davis have been made public and as suspected, they aren’t pretty. Brandon Marcello of fills in the details of the reports:

Former Auburn star Philip Lutzenkirchen and the driver of the vehicle that crashed on June 30 and resulted in their deaths were both legally drunk, according to documents released Wednesday.

Joseph Ian Davis, the driver, registered a blood alcohol content level of 0.17 (the legal limit in Georgia is 0.08); Lutzenkirchen, who was seated in the back seat, registered a blood alcohol level of 0.377.

It was reported that Lutzenkirchen was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
