Testimony continues in Terri Elmore trial

Posted: Updated:

Testimony continued Wednesday in the intoxication manslaughter trial of former EMT Terri Elmore.

She's accused of causing a fatal crash in 2011 that claimed the lives of a local pastor and his wife.

Wednesday afternoon, an expert with experience on the medical effects of alcohol was called to the stand.

The jury was told that Terri Elmore drank four beers in three hours at a bar before the crash and appeared to be upset when she left after receiving a phone call. 

A medical expert was asked would a 140 pound women get drunk by drinking that much. Hypothetically, he said it would, around .205 - about the same rate Elmore tested at after she was taken into custody. 

Later in the day, a state trooper, who was investigating the crash, said he tried to talk to Elmore while she was at the hospital but was unable to because she was either in the operating room or unresponsive.

The trooper said weeks later he was able to determine alcohol was present in Elmore's system, based on medical records.
