Police have seized vials of blood drawn from a Virginia Beach woman hospitalized after a two-car crash last week that killed her passenger.

A search-warrant affidavit made public this week shows police are investigating whether Brook Anne White was drunk when a Chevrolet Malibu she was driving hit a Chevrolet Suburban on Pungo Ferry Road. The crash on Nov. 26 killed White’s passenger, Michael Joseph Liszeo. White, and the driver of the Suburban, were both hurt.

In the affidavit, Officer Colin P. Mack said he could smell alcohol coming from the car White was driving. He wrote that White denied she had been drinking, but admitted to taking the prescription drug Xanax.

Mack wrote that the car White was driving first drifted off the right side of the road, and then turned sharply back onto the pavement. It crossed the center line and hit a Suburban. Online court records do not show any charges for White in last week’s crash. However, court files show she was convicted of drunk-driving two years ago.
