— The driver who police said caused a double-fatal accident last fall by going on the wrong way on Interstate 675 was intoxicated, according to coroner’s records.
Melvin Bonie of Beavercreek had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his blood on Oct. 16, according to the Montgomery County coroner’s report.
About 9:30 p.m. that day, Centerville police said he drove northbound in the interstate’s southbound lane, prompting the wreck that killed himself and Kalip Grimm of Miami Twp.
The alcohol content in the blood of the 69-year-old Bonie was 0.182 percent, according to the coroner’s toxicology report. The legal limit for Ohio drivers is 0.08.
Grimm, a 2017 Miamisburg High School graduate, was less than a week away from celebrating his 19th birthday, when the accident occurred just north of the interchange of Ohio 48, where police said Bonie entered the highway.

— Have you ever met anyone who liked their driver’s license photo?
Of course not.
Photos on driver’s licenses always seem to show a person at his or her worst, but a bill proposed in the California state legislature would give drivers a choice, KABC reported.
The bill would allow drivers to have multiple photos taken, and would allow them to choose a favorite for the license.
While the bill would grant drivers freedom of choice, it would be more expensive for drivers getting their photos taken, KABC reported.
