Senator Mitch McConnell’s sister-in-law, Angela Chao, is the CEO of the shipping sector. She was driving while inebriated and died in a Texas pond last month, according to a law enforcement report made public on Wednesday.

The Blanco County Sheriff’s Office investigation found that Chao’s blood alcohol content was almost three times the state legal limit and that her death was a “unfortunate accident.”

Amber Keinan, a friend, told detectives that Chao called her at 11:42 p.m., saying the car was in the water and she was trapped inside. The talk lasted 8 minutes while the automobile gradually sank.

According to the account, friends swam to the car and another paddled out in a kayak.

Police Investigation

When police enforcement and firefighters came, they got into the water and attempted to board the Tesla, according to the report. They shattered the driver’s side glass, and a deputy searched until he found Chao’s hand.

Emergency responders pulled her from the automobile and transported her to shore, where she was pronounced dead at 1:40 a.m. on February 11.

According to the report, Chao’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.233 grams per 100 milliliters, which was more than the Texas legal limit of.08.
