SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A 29-year-old man who was charged in a crash that killed four teenagers and seriously injured a fifth has been found not guilty by a Santa Fe jury.
Jurors reached their verdict Tuesday evening in the case of Scott Owens.
The Santa Fe-area man had pleaded not guilty to four counts of vehicular homicide and one count of causing great bodily harm in the June 28, 2009, crash on the Old Las Vegas highway near Santa Fe.
Authorities allege he was driving in the wrong lane just after midnight when he ran into the teens' car.
Officials had said his blood-alcohol content was 0.16 percent, double the legal driving limit.
The defense had argued that another teen driver tapped the teens' car and forced it into oncoming traffic.
