|

An Arizona sheriff's blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit when he died in a crash in northern Arizona, an autopsy report shows.

Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever's 2008 Chevrolet truck rolled on the gravel road on Sept. 18. His blood-alcohol level was 0.291, the report released Monday says.

The truck's black box showed Dever was traveling at 62 mph before the crash and that his seat belt was unbuckled, according to authorities.
