A toxicology report on a Angelina College professor who was killed after his car struck another vehicle head-on on State Highway 7, just east of the Nacogdoches city limits back in May revealed that his blood-alcohol level was .230 at the time of the accident.

East Texas News obtained a copy of the toxicology report from the Texas Department of Public Safety on Friday. The report from the DPS Tyler Crime Laboratory revealed that Taylor Lee Hall’s blood-alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit, which is .08.

The report was dated June 20.

Hall, 29, of Nacogdoches was driving a 2008 Toyota east on Highway 7 on May 20 when he crossed the center stripe and hit a 2012 Chevy, driven by Dominique Malone, 25, of Huntington.

Hall was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which was one-fifth of a mile east of Nacogdoches at 9:12 p.m. Malone was transported to a Nacogdoches hospital for treatment of his injuries.

According to a previous East Texas News story, Gary Stallard, a spokesman for Angelina College, confirmed that Hall was a biology instructor at AC.
