An autopsy report found Major League Baseball pitcher Roy Halladay had zolpidem, amphetamines, morphine, and in his system when he died, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
The presence of those drugs alone does not mean the pilot was impaired, however. That determination has to be made by the federal agency, which has yet to release a final report.
“At this point you can’t assess impairment solely based on the drug concentrations,” Goldberger said. “You have to wait for the NTSB to weigh in on their investigation. They’ll likely be able to assess the role of the drugs in the accident.”
