Latvian pedestrian with twice lethal alcohol level killed by car

A Latvian pedestrian with twice what is regarded as a lethal alcohol level was killed by an automobile while he lay in a drunken stupor on the roadside.  His 0.9 alcohol level makes it unlikely that he had done all his drinking in a single day.  Probably he had consumed home-made alcohol for several days before his fatal accident.   For details, see the Reuters story here.
