Reported that University of Notre Dame student Caitlin Brann, 22, died in a motor vehicle accident.  According to police, a rear passenger side tire on her car blew out which caused loss of control resulting in the car going airborne and rolling over many times. Tests  revealed that Catlin's blood alcohol level was 0.249 percent, well above Indiana's 0.08-percent legal limit for intoxication.  According to investigators, the blowout was the initial cause but alcohol was a contributing factor.
