Funeral to be held for teen killed by alleged drunk driver

LINDENHURST - A funeral will be held tomorrow morning for the Lindenhurst teenager who was killed by an alleged drunk driver on Sunday.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Michael Grasing, of Babylon, was driving between 85 and 100 mph with a blood alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit when he hit 18-year-old Brittney Walsh's SUV. Her car flipped over multiple times on Montauk Highway before hitting a utility pole.

Surveillance cameras from a nearby store captured the horrible crash.

Walsh, an honor student and star athlete, had just graduated from Copiague High School.Wake to be held for teen killed by drunken driver in LindenhurstCops ask for public's help in DWI crash that killed teen
