Sounds like alcohol & speeding where a factor.

Well speeding was the obvious factor. As for alcohol, a blood test is standard in any severe vehicle accident, it doesn't mean a thing at this point.

I hope it wasn't, but it sure does sound like it played a factor.

How? Because he had a standard test? That is the only mention of alcohol.

So far everything points to speeding, but no alcohol.

The article says Heater was speeding, but I doubt he/they would be sloshed coming home from a season ticket-holder function.
Also, as a fan of the Thrashers as well as the Flyers, I just want to say that I hope Snyder pulls through. Man, 2003 has been a really bad year for hockey, especially with car accidents.

I feel like I'm forgetting one or two guys too.
Let's all hope that 2004 holds brighter days for the NHL.

Also, over the all star break Ossi Vaananen was hurt by an old and out of control driver in Florida.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that, but he just got clipped and not really badly hurt.
And yes, I did forget Girard. Still, it's a tragic list...

Because of the time of day, and the rate of speed, most of these accidents include alcohol.
Again, I hope it's just speed involved, but look what history tells us.

Baron,
Your logic is good. I would not be surpised if your deduction is true.
I also echo your hope that it wasn't.

He was coming back from an event for season ticket holders, and there was no alcohol served.

TSN reported tonight that the alcohol level in Heatley's blood was well below the legal limit and it's been confirmed that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.

The difference whether alcohal was involved

ok i have read a few posts that alcohal was not involved. but even if it were the thing is you can't turn back the clock and two guys were injured and nothing is gonna change that. i just hope they are both ok and able to live a normal life.

the only difference at this point in regards to alcohal were if it was a factor, heatley would have some serious criminal charges and at this point the two guys making a recovery is more important than what heatley gets charged with.

Heatley and Snyder are both very lucky to be alive. how they survived is beyond me, even thou Snyder is still in critacal condition. I see that car and all i can think of Pelle Lindbergh.
