Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota said Wednesday the driver who fatally struck a Lindenhurst teen on her way home from work had a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit and was speeding up to 100 mph before crashing into the victim's car, causing it to flip and hit a utility pole.
