TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The accident report released by the Texas Department of Transportation for the single-vehicle wreck that killed a Tyler teen showed the 17-year-old had a blood alcohol content of .224.

Braxton Nuon crashed his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado on Bascom Road just north of Whitehouse in the early morning hours of June 22. Friends told KLTV the day of the crash that the teen was driving home from a friend’s house.

That crash report shows Nuon was wearing a seat belt. The speed limit on Bascom Road is 55 miles per hour, but officials said he was speeding. A blood test was taken and showed an elevated amount of alcohol, but no drugs. The truck's airbags did not deploy in the accident.

Nuon’s truck rolled several times partially ejecting the teen. He was taken to a Tyler hospital where he died just before noon.

This crash is being investigated by the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission. Investigators say they are currently doing a source investigation to try to find out where the alcohol was purchased and how the teen got it. If a legal adult bought the teen the alcohol they could face criminal charges according to TABC.
