Autopsy results show that a Wichita woman who killed herself and two other women when she crashed her car into a second vehicle while fleeing the Kansas Highway Patrol last month was legally drunk.

Tests on 24-year-old Jennifer Stilley after the Nov. 15 crash showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent, more than twice the state’s legal limit to be considered intoxicated of 0.08 percent.

The patrol is still investigating the crash. But Michael King, whose sister, Peggy King, was killed in the crash, said the blood-alcohol finding “sheds light on why (Stilley) ran.”

Forty-four-year-old Peggy King was a passenger in the vehicle Stilley hit.

Stilley’s family couldn’t be reached for comment.

A patrolman began chasing Stilley after clocking her car going 83 mph in a 60 mph zone on Interstate 135 in south Wichita.
