FARMLAND — Authorities in eastern Indiana say a 17-year-old driver had been drinking alcohol before pulling out in front of a train in a crash in which she and a classmate were killed.Farmland Town Marshal Melvin Nott tells The Star Press that tests determined Kristin Kiser had a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 percent, nearly double the state's legal limit for driving by someone at least 21.

Police say Kiser was driving about 2:30 a.m. Oct. 28 when the car went onto the tracks despite red warning lights and alarms at the crossing about 15 miles east of Muncie. The crash killed Kiser and 17-year-old Amber Morrow and injured a fellow Monroe Central High School student.

Nott says investigators haven't determined where the teens were before the crash.
