NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Prosecutors say the driver charged in the crash that killed a student from the College of New Jersey had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit.

The suspect, 22-year-old David Lamar, was allegedly trying to pass other vehicles when crossed into oncoming traffic, slamming into Michael Sot's car.

Sot was the designated driver for five college friends. They survived the crash but Sot did not.

Prosecutors say Lamar had been drinking for hours at a bar near the school campus in Ewing before getting behind the wheel.

A superior court judge said Tuesday he needed time to decide whether to detain Lamar, pending his trial.
