Update, noon Tuesday
Jason Adams surrendered to police and was booked on a charge of vehicular homicide Tuesday, NOPD spokesman Tyler Gamble said.
Toxicology reports revealed that Adams had a blood alcohol content of .11 at the time of the crash, above the legal limit, Gamble said.
Jason Adams, the driver of a Lamborghini that crashed into a floodwall on Tchoupitoulas Street earlier this month, killing 23-year-old Kristi Lynn Lirette, is planning to surrender to authorities Tuesday on a charge of vehicular homicide, his attorney confirmed.
The lawyer, Nandi Campbell, confirmed last week that Adams, a 30-year-old businessman, was behind the wheel of the leased 2015 Lamborghini when it crashed along the riverfront at Felicity Street in the Lower Garden District just before midnight on May 4.
Adams was hospitalized with a broken leg and other injuries and later released.
Lirette’s family hired their own attorney, who said his investigation showed that Adams may have been driving over 100 miles per hour before the crash.
New Orleans police had yet to identify or charge Adams as of last week. NOPD spokesman Tyler Gamble said Thursday that toxicology test results would play a “large factor” in a decision on possible charges.
