Douglas County Sheriff's Deputies have released autopsy results for three people killed in a crash near 180th and Blondo earlier this month.
 
Deputies say Robert Baker of Elkhorn, Patricia Padron, and Jonathan Rodriguez both of Grand Island all died from blunt force trauma injuries. The three were in a pickup that was southbound on 180th and crossed Blondo, traveling through a cornfield and ended up crashing into Papillion Creek.  Investigators say the pickup was travelling in excess of 100 miles per hour when it left the roadway.  Police found the wreckage a few days after the crash.
 
Deputies say Baker, who was driving the pickup, also had a blood alcohol level of .268 and also had THC in his system.
