The driver involved in a single-vehicle accident that killed two adults and two children on Dec. 27 was driving under the influence of meth, officials say. No alcohol was detected.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner released a report surrounding the deaths of 29-year-old Larry Williams, 22-year-old Ayana Hill and two children. Their deaths were ruled accidental.

The accident happened on 26th St. and Townsend just after 8 p.m. Police said that Williams had went through a yellow light, lost control of the car and hit a tree at a high rate of speed. The impact of the crash split the car in half.

An official with the Milwaukee Police Department Traffic Bureau said that a download of the air bag control module found that the vehicle was traveling over 90 mph at the time of the accident.

A 1-year-old child was the sole survivor of the crash.
