The driver of a speeding Porsche Boxster convertible that went airborne and crashed into the second floor of a commercial building last year in Toms River, killing both of the car's occupants, was under the influence of alcohol and drugs -- according to a report made public Friday by the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.
The crash happened back on Nov. 10 around 6:30 a.m. on Hooper Avenue.
The prosecutor's office says Braden DeMartin, 22, of Toms River, had blood-alcohol and marijuana contents of more than twice the legal limits when the crash occurred.
The red Porsche Boxster that DeMartin was driving went out of control and hit the center median before striking an embankment and going airborne into the building, which was unoccupied at the time.
DeMartin's passenger, Dan Foley, 23, of Toms River, was also killed in the crash.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
