A judge tossed out evidence of marijuana use by a Clark County driver in a case where two local teenagers were killed in a car crash.
Trey Blevins, 18, still faces two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide in the deaths of 17-year-old David Waag and 15-year-old Conor Williams. Authorities accused Blevins of being under the influence in 2017 when he lost control of the 2005 Toyota Corolla and crashed into a tree on the side of Wilkerson Road in Greene County.
The teens were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident and died at the scene.
However, key evidence used to charge Blevins was tossed after a judge ruled a drug test taken after the crash was obtained unconstitutionally.
Greene County Common Pleas Judge Stephen Wolaver ruled an affidavit filed to obtain a search warrant for the drug test left out important facts.
