Man Arrested In Connection With Deadly Crash

Man Arrested In Connection With Deadly Crash

A 42-year-old Sioux Falls man is under arrest for buying vodka for two teens who died in a rollover crash last Sunday.

Court documents filed late Friday afternoon say Tyrone Gastineau admitted to investigators that he bought 17-year-old Raphie Phan and his girlfriend alcohol on Saturday night.

Phan and 19-year-old Amanda Doty were killed just after midnight Sunday morning when their car rolled just outside of Sioux Falls.     

Gastineau was arrested and charged Friday with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and purchasing alcohol for a minor.

The charges follow a week-long investigation after Phan and Doty were thrown from a Honda Accord on a rural Minnehaha County road near the Sioux Falls landfill.  Court documents say alcohol containers were scattered around the scene, including a vodka bottle.

An arrest warrant says Gastineau admitted to buying Phan and Doty vodka at a Sioux Falls liquor store just three hours earlier.  Court documents say police got an anonymous tip Wednesday that Gastineau bought the teenagers alcohol.

When investigators questioned him about the crash at his Sioux Falls apartment Thursday, Gastineau said Phan drove him to the liquor store on Saturday night and gave him $25 to buy a half gallon of vodka.

Blood test results show that Phan, who was driving the car, was just above the legal limit with a 0.096 blood alcohol content and Doty was at 0.393, which is nearly five times the legal limit.
