November 27, 2017by Aaron Allison

That massive wrong-way drunk driving crash on Research Boulevard in November that led to the death of Nancy and Jackson Latulippe has claimed another victim. Scott Latulippe, the 41-year-old husband of Nancy and father of Jackson, was recently taken off life support after suffering a severe traumatic brain injury.

The accident occurred when 41-year-old Guy Bransted lost control of his Jeep and crossed the wire barriers separating the north and southbound sides of 183. He slammed into the family’s rented Fiat and was ejected from his vehicle. He did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Police found that his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the crash was .203, over two times the legal limit.

There was only one survivor in the rented Fiat, 10-year-old Kiera Latulippe. The family had been vacationing in Austin, and was driving back to the airport to return home to California when the crash happened
