NICEVILLE, Fla Autopsy reports say a former high school basketball coach and two young women were intoxicated when they were thrown into the water after their boat struck a bridge piling.
The crash happened on the Choctawhatchee Bay in December. Authorities have classified their deaths as accidental.
The body of 18-year-old Taylor Evanoff was found in the water on Dec. 6. The bodies of 47-year-old Robert Williams and 21-year-old Jamilia Beltz were found the next day. Authorities believe the boat crashed Dec. 5.

Williams coached the Bay High School boys basketball team for five seasons, leading them to a state Final Four berth in 2003.
