Philip Lutzenkirchen: Former Auburn Player Killed in Crash Was Drunk

By    |   Wednesday, 06 Aug 2014 06:40 PM

Former Auburn football player Philip Lutzenkirchen and the man driving both were legally drunk during a fatal one-vehicle crash that killed the two men on June 30.

Lutzenkirchen, 23, had a blood alcohol level of 0.377 at the time of the crash, The Associated Press reported, citing the Georgia State Patrol's toxicology report released Wednesday. He was a passenger in a Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Joseph Ian Davis, 22, whose blood alcohol level was 0.17, twice the legal limit of 0.08. The car ran a stop sign, ran off the road and overturned at about 3 a.m. on June 30.

Two other passengers in the vehicle, Christian Case and Elizabeth Craig, were injured. Only Case was wearing a seatbelt, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Lutzenkirchen and Craig were in the backseat and were ejected during the crash. Davis was partially ejected.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Lutzenkirchen, who played from 2009 to 2012, will "be remembered as one of the best players to ever put on an Auburn jersey," the AP reported.

He set a school record for tight ends with 14 touchdown catches.

Twitter users were shocked by the news.
