TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — An autopsy report says a man who killed four people and himself while driving the wrong way on a Florida highway had more than twice the state's legal limit of alcohol in his system.

The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's office released the autopsy report Monday for 28-year-old Daniel Morris of Tampa.

The crash happened on Interstate 275 in Tampa on Feb. 8. Morris' SUV hit a Hyundai Sonata carrying four University of South Florida members of the fraternity Sigma Beta Rho.

The autopsy report says Morris had a blood alcohol level of 0.20 percent. State law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent.

The report also says Morris had a trace of marijuana in his system.
