Day 3 Of Roegester Grays Trial

Local News

The third day of trial wrapped up Wednesday in the Roegester Grays case.

Grays is facing several charges including two counts of homicide by vehicle after a car accident that killed two parents, Ryan and Karen English back in 2013.

Grays is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and/ or a controlled substance.

Part of his defense is that he swerved, crossing the yellow line to avoid hitting a black dog in the roadway.

One of the most important things learned in court today: lab technicians at Arnot Ogden medical center testify Grays’ blood alcohol content was .123 at the time he reached the hospital. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is .08.

Grays did not take a field sobriety test at the scene because he was taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

The defense is questioning how the samples were handled and the time in which they were taken in relation to the crash.

On Wednesday, the jury heard from the doctor who treated Grays, the doctor who treated the English children, two Pennsylvania state troopers and other medical professionals from Arnot who handled the blood samples there. Thursday, they will hear from two other witnesses before closing arguments.
