Officials: Rapper drunk in wrong-way crash that killed 3

EVENDALE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio rapper had a blood alcohol content of more than 2 ½ times the legal limit when he drove the wrong way and crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing himself and a couple in another car.

The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office says 30-year-old Kory Wilson of Springfield Township had a blood alcohol content of .209 when he crashed an SUV into a Fairfield couple’s car last April. The state’s legal limit for driving is .08.

Wilson’s rapper stage name was “Kalyko.”

Evendale police say the crash happened on Interstate 75 north of Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bengals player Dre Kirkpatrick was with Wilson shortly before the crash and has said that he knew Wilson was drinking and didn’t stop him from driving.

The driver in a third car suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
