Suspected DWI crash on US 183 claims third victim

Crime

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The deadly crash on US 183 near North MoPac that killed a mother and son last Saturday has claimed the life of a third person.

Scott Latulippe, 41, was taken off life support Friday morning. Earlier this week, Scott’s brother-in-law Tim Enos told KXAN Scott’s brain had been damaged severely in the head-on crash. Now that he’s been taken off life support, the family is working with the hospital to donate his organs.

Scott’s wife, Nancy, 38, and son Jackson, 14, died at the scene when police say Guy Brasted, 41, lost control of his Jeep, crossed the median and slammed into the family’s rental Fiat. Brasted was ejected from his Jeep, but he did not suffer any life-threatening injuries. The family’s 10-year-old daughter Kiera was the only survivor.

The family was on their way to the Austin airport to head back home to Southern California when the crash happened.

The Austin Police Department is asking anyone with information about Brasted or his conduct on the day of the crash, Nov. 11, they are urged to call police. Brasted is currently charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault–the assault charge could be upgraded now that Scott has died.

Authorities drew Brasted’s blood at the hospital and determined he had a Blood Alcohol Concentration level of .203, which is more than two times the legal limit.

Valley Center High School in Valley Center, Calif. is holding a vigil for the Latulippe family Friday night following the school’s football game. Scott taught at the school and Jackson attended the school. Keira is expected to attend the vigil.
