Driver in crash that killed coach Moore’s wife and daughter was more than 2.5 times over BAC limit

MADISON (WKOW) — A wrong-way driver who crashed head-on into the family of Badger assistant basketball coach Howard Moore near Ann Arbor on May 15 was intoxicated to levels more than 2.5 times the legal limit, according to medical examiner reports obtained by The Detroit News.

Moore’s wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Jaidyn, were killed as a result of the crash, while Moore and his son, Jerell, survived.

Samantha Winchester, 23, of Ann Arbor had a blood alcohol content level of 0.207,  according to toxicology reports obtained by the paper.

Michigan’s legal limit is a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent.

Jerell was released from the hospital in late May.

Howard Moore had a recent setback in late July when he experienced a medical issue at his Madison-area home that required him to be transported to a hospital. While in transit, he went into cardiac arrest.

Moore was moved to a long-term care and rehabilitation facility and won’t coach in the upcoming 2019-’20 season.

Former Badger Alando Tucker will serve as an interim assistant coach, filling Moore’s role with the team.
