From the Australian Broadcast Corp.:
The dangers of driving while under the influence of ecstasy have been raised by [a] coroner, as part of his findings into a fatal car accident in July last year.Jason Tucker died when his car ploughed into an oncoming semi-trailer on Long Gully Road near Isaacs.
He was found to have four times the toxic or lethal concentration of ecstasy in his system.
Tucker obviously was suffering from a complete lack of judgment — something that happens all too frequently when normal brain activities are altered with mind-altering drugs.
