Off-duty officer had been drinking before deadly crash

Police Officer George Boggs

ST. LOUIS – An off-duty St. Louis police officer had a blood alcohol level that was twice the legal limit when he was killed in a wrong-way crash.

The St. Louis County medical examiner’s office also found that 58-year-old George Boggs had beer cans in his minivan in February when he drove into an oncoming sport utility vehicle on Missouri 367. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Boggs’ minivan overturned and he was declared dead at the scene.

The other driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Boggs had been with the police force for 20 years.

Highway patrol officials said they were never able to determine how long Boggs was driving the wrong way on the highway or what exit he used to enter the roadway.
