Law enforcement performed a sobriety test after the accident, and Rein passed. He told police he didn’t have any medical issues and that he was wearing sneakers.
A witness at the scene told reporters she believes the SUV was going about 60 mph when it slammed into the building. She told the police it didn’t look as though the driver tried to hit the brakes or slow down in any way before the accident.
Rein’s next court date is December 22. A judge set his bail at $100,000 and ordered that he not leave the state should he post it.
