Bowyer, according to officials, supplied a roadside sample with a blood alcohol level of.000 and displayed no signs of intoxication.

Simmons was under the influence of drugs, according to the official crash report, and detectives suspect a crystalline substance recovered in her belongings is methamphetamine.

On Thursday, June 16, Bowyer gave a statement to Fox4 about the accident, saying, “. My thoughts and prayers are with Ms Simmons’ family and loved ones. Please respect my family’s and my privacy as we go on at this tough time.”
