Blood tests show Ashli Heil 3 times legal limit before crash that killed 8 month old

Channel 2 is reporting that, per investigators, Ashli Nicol Heil‘s blood test revealed that she was three times the legal limit for intoxication at the time her Chevrolet Suburban left the roadway in Cut and Shoot earlier this week, striking a tree and killing Ms. Heil’s 8-month old daughter, baby Whilow Heil. Ashli Heil’s Facebook page indicates that she is from Kingwood, Texas and lives in Humble, Texas. The crash happened on FM 1484 on Monday. Investigators, whose names were not included in the Channel 2 article, said Ashli Heil’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was .28, significantly above Texas’ legal limit for intoxication of .08.  Investigators also said data downloaded from the Suburban’s on board computer showed the vehicle was speeding at 68 MPH at the time of the wreck. Harris County Clerk records indicate Ashli Heil has had two prior run-ins with the law: a 2004 criminal mischief arrest followed by a guilty plea and two days in jail, then a 2007 arrest for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, for which she got four years probation that ended in August. Baby Whilow was in a car seat at the time of the crash, but the impact was very severe and was to the rear passenger door where Whilow’s car seat was located.

One of Ashli’s favorite quotes on her Facebook page is “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” This accident is a terrible tragedy. Whilow’s life has been lost and of course, Ashli Heil’s life is forever changed.
