Editor’s Note: Our original headline for this story read: “Kitty woman, 30, dies in accident on Camp Street; both drivers were intoxicated”. The results of the breathalyzer tests, as stated in the original Police report, appeared to have been incorrectly stated and we sought to verify the figures with Police headquarters. The original Police report stated: “A breathalyzer test was done on the driver of motor car Parasram and the results showed 14% and 33% BAC and for Rahman, the results showed 3% and 6% BAC.” A Police spokesman has since informed us that the results should have read 0.14% and 0.33% for Parasram and 0.03% and 0.06% for Rahman. Therefore, the blood alcohol content for neither of the two men exceeded the prescribed limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol.
