Authorities say a man accused of fatally running over two German tourists at a southwest Washington swimming hole told police he had been drinking at a local restaurant prior to the crash. Court documents show a preliminary breath test taken nearly four hours after the Tuesday afternoon crash in Washougal, Washington, found David Croswell had a blood-alcohol level of 0.085. In Washington, a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or greater is considered evidence of drunken driving.
