Former Ohio State wide receiver Terry Glenn had a blood alcohol concentration of .165 – more than twice the legal limit of .08 – and "significant traces of marijuana in his system" during his fatal car accident in November, according to an autopsy report obtained by TMZ Sports.

Glenn, who played for the Buckeyes from 1993-95, died on Nov. 20 when his car struck a concrete barrier in an early-morning accident in Irving, Texas, while he and his fiancee were returning home from a Dallas Cowboys.

Glenn was 43 years old.

According to the Center for Disease Control, a blood alcohol concentration of .15 or higher can result in "substantial impairment in vehicle control." In 2015, the most recent year for which statistics were finalized, 10,265 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes in the United States.

A product of Brookhaven High School in Columbus, Glenn won the Biletnikoff Award and was a consensus All-American for the Buckeyes in 1995, when he caught 64 passes for 1,411 yards and 17 touchdowns. After the 1995 season, Glenn was selected by the New England Patriots with the No. 7 overall pick in the 1996 NFL draft, and went on to play 12 NFL seasons with the Patriots, Green Bay Packers and Cowboys.
