DPS Says Teen Driver In Fatal Accident Not Drunk

DPS says the driver in the after prom wreck that killed two Floydada teens was not drinking.

A blood test shows 18-year-old Nolan Armstrong did not have alcohol in his system when he lost control of a pickup the morning of April 19th, after the Lockney High School prom.

Dylan Thomas, 15, and Tanner Sue, 17, from Floydada were killed in the rollover. Troopers initially said alcohol may have been a factor because the teens were coming from an after prom party.

Armstrong's family has said he was the designated driver, had not been drinking, and swerved to miss a rabbit when he lost control of the pickup. DPS says that speed was a factor in the wreck.
