Rowe, 24, was driving on Lotus Landing near Gateway Drive just before 3 a.m. when she lost control of her 2002 Chevrolet and hit a tree, state troopers said. Rowe suffered minor injuries, but her 28-year-old passenger, Michael Kroohs of Altamonte Springs, was seriously hurt.

In Florida, the legal limit for blood alcohol level is 0.08. Blood test results showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.15, nearly double the legal limit.
