A former Corona del Mar High School track star who died in a high-speed crash that killed two along Mariner's Mile earlier this year had been taking antipsychotic drugs, according to a toxicology report released Monday.
Olanzapine and quetiapine, drugs prescribed for manic depression and schizophrenia, were found in the body of Julia "Julie" Allen, according to the Orange County coroner's report.
Allen suffered from bipolar disorder, the report stated, which can cause manic and depressive states, but there was no reference to schizophrenia.
The drugs Allen was taking can cause drowsiness and other side effects, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It was unclear, however, from an initial reading of the report what type of effects, if any, the drugs may have had on Allen's ability to drive.
It was also unclear if the drugs were simply found in her system or if she had been taking them in the hours before the crash.
