Cause of death revealed in death of Danielle Downey

AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — Alcohol is believed to have played a part in the death of a former pro golfer and Auburn alum. Toxicology reports show Danielle Downey had a blood alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit when she crashed.

Friends say the 33-year-old had several drinks before dinner and throughout the night. While waiting for a ride, her friends said she became impatient and drove off. A short while later, her car hit a tree and flipped several times. Downey was thrown from the vehicle and later died at the hospital.
