ORONO --  The Orono police department says both alcohol and speed were factors in a crash that killed two people including Mack Motzko.

The police department released an updated statement on Friday saying the lab results from the driver, 51-year-old James Blue, indicate he had a blood-alcohol level of .175, more than twice the legal limit.

Data from the vehicle's airbag module indicate a speed of 94 to 99 miles an hour seconds prior to the crash.
