Another example of sheer stupidity

A University graduate died in a single vehicle accident as Unofficial St. Patrick's Day drew to an end Friday night.

Champaign Police Department officials say Caroline Yoon, 22, fell off the backseat of a motorcycle that crashed at the intersection of Wright and Healey streets in Champaign at 11:53 p.m.

The driver of the motorcycle, Samuel Park, 23, has been charged with a DUI. The accident is still under investigation, and according to Champaign Police officials, further charges may be forthcoming.

Yoon was rushed to Carle Foundation Hospital Emergency Room where she was pronounced dead four hours after the accident.

Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup said Yoon was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, and died of head trauma.

Toxicology tests on Yoon's blood concerning her blood alcohol level will not be returned for two or three weeks. Park was released on a $1,000 bond early Saturday morning.

At the time of Yoon's death, Northrup said she was wearing a green t-shirt with the words "Unofficial St. Patrick's Day" printed on the front. An autopsy of the body was performed Saturday in Bloomington, Ill.

Yoon, who received her undergraduate degree from the University, is from Glenview, Ill., and was enrolled as a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania.

sad story

I always wondered:: They always say the blood test to determine if alcohol was involved will take 2-3 weeks ( or whatever time frame) but a brethalyzer takes seconds. They must be able to take blood and see how much alcohol is in it almost immediately no???

Wow, that's really sad.

Mike, I imagine that they're testing for other things besides just alcohol.

Maybe not, though. I don't know the chemical principles for each, but the tests do work completely differently and it's not impossible that the blood test chemistry may just take longer to develop, as it were. I do know that the blood test is supposed to be much more accurate than the breath test, and it's possible that the extra accuracy comes at the expense of less speed.

I'd agree with Sticky, too, that they're going to be looking for more than just alcohol. Not hard to imagine that a full toxicology screen would be in order in a case like this, of which the alcohol test would be only a part.

I think it maybe because they have to send the blood out to a lab.

I know with DNA, it takes a while because the labs are booked with cases.


The alcohol content should still be in the blood, because there isn't any biological organisms that can break it down.

It's going to be hard to test her blood b/c it was full of green beer.

RIP, but

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Breathalizer would be kind of hard since she's dead! which means the body is not metabolizing the alcohol, and not sending it to the lungs to be exhaled, and of course the lack of exhaling could be an issue as well.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
