Blood Alcohol Level For Driver Killed In Crash Over Legal Limit

CONEMAUGH TWP. (KDKA) — A man who died in a head-on crash in Indiana County was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Gerald Halldin, 45, crashed head-on with another vehicle on Route 286 in Conemaugh Township just before 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6.

The Indiana County Coroner says Halldin’s blood alcohol level was .271 – more than three times the legal limit of .08 when he was behind the wheel of his 1969 Camaro.

Investigators believe Halldin was street racing with a Corvette when he crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Hyundai Elantra.

The driver of the Elantra remains in critical condition at a hospital in Pittsburgh.
