Posted on: 6:42 pm, October 3, 2012, by


Police now say alcohol and distracted driving played a role in a deadly crash earlier this week.

Investigators say 25-year old Brandon Anderson had been drinking Monday night when he drove the wrong way down Interstate-80 near Ankeny.

Anderson crashed in into a car driven by 53-year old Kevin O’Sullivan of Illinois.

Both men were killed.

Police are still waiting for test results to determine the amount of alcohol in Anderson’s system at the time of the crash.

Investigators also say O’sullivan was watching a DVD while driving and the DVD was still playing when emergency crews reached the scene.
