MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

UPDATE: The Midland Police Department tells us blood alcohol levels are in for the driver in the wrong-way crash that left five dead back in June. 

Kelly Brooks had a blood alcohol content of .278, about 3.5 times the legal limit of .08. 

---------

A recently released crash report from the Texas Department of Transportation shows the driver, Kelly Brooks, had been drinking and that may have been a contributing factor to the crash. 

The report goes on to say a blood sample was taken from Brooks, the exact levels won't be back until the toxicology report is finalized. 

Brooks was driving the wrong way on Highway 191 when she struck a vehicle head on. Five people died in the accident, including Brooks's two daughters, Kadyn Ann Pitts, 6, and 6 week-old Bailey Gonzales.

Best friends, Augustin Esquivel and Hong Taing, also died in the accident.
