® Paul's blood contained
Prozac and tiapride when
fatal crash took place
The Washington Post
PARIS - Henri Paul's bloodstream con-
tained a deadly mix of alcohol and drugs when
the Mercedes he was driving slammed into a
pillar in a highway tunnel here early on Aug.
31, killing Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and
Paul, the Paris prosecutor's office said yester-
One drug was the antidepressant Prozac.
The other, tiapride, is most commonly pre-
scribed for recovering alcoholics, French
medical experts said. The combination of the
two with alcohol would enhance a feeling of
euphoria while reducing physical reaction
time and impairing vision, these experts
The office of the Paris prosecutor, in its sec-
ond formal communication since the fatal
crash more than a week ago, said a third blood
analysis on Paul, assistant security director for
the Ritz Hotel here, had determined his blood-
alcohol level to be 1.8 grams per liter, far more
than the legal limit for driving in France. That
was consistent with two earlier tests conducted
by authorities; Paul's family had requested the
The prosecutor's office said Paul's system
contained a "therapeutic" dose of fluoxetine,
the active ingredient in Prozac, and traces of
tiapride, a drug prescribed to relieve some of
the psychological distress associated with giv-
ing up alcohol or to prevent some of the acute
effects of alcohol withdrawal. Tiapride should
never be taken in combination with alcohol,
Someone under the influence of those two
drugs and about nine alcoholic beverages - a
rough measure of what Paul must have drunk
- would be bursting with euphoria and a feel-
ing of invulnerability, experts said. At the same
time, his reflexes and reaction time would be
markedly slowed. And his vision would be
impaired, particularly at night and while dri-
ving at high speeds, because the eye's pupil
accommodates changes in the field of vision
"You could not do worse," said Rene
Salinger, a Paris neuropsychiatrist. "There is
no worse combination."
Last week, Mohamed Fayed, Dodi Fayed's
father and the owner of the Ritz, released hotel
security tapes that showed Paul entering the
hotel after he was called back to work Saturday
evening and walking down a hallway. In the
brief moments he appears on tape, he is not
However, Fayed's Paris lawyer, Bernard
Dartevelle, said Paul "should never have gotten
behind the wheel."
In an interview with France 3 television
aired yesterday evening, Dartevelle appeared
to abandon Mohamed Fayed's strategy of
defending Paul. "He was without doubt the
only one who knew his own condition,'
Dartevelle said. "If his condition had been
known, perhaps ... he could have been pre-
vented from leaving:'
The Ritz declined comment yesterday on the
results of the latest blood-alcohol test, saying it
will have nothing to say until the investigation
Also yesterday, a newspaper report said
Diana's last words, spoken to an emergency
doctor as paparazzi surrounding the wrecked
car snapped pictures and flashed strobe lights,
were: "Leave me alone."
The newspaper Le Parisien quoted the
unidentified physician as saying Diana's
body was halfway out of the car but her arms
were resting on the back of the seat in front
"She was very agitated, half knocked-out
but conscious," the doctor told the newspa-
per. "All around her, there were photogra-
phers machine-gunning her" with camera
shots. "They were just a few centimeters
from her face." Diana groaned, struggled a
bit and murmured, "Oh my God," Le Parisien
said, and then, "Leave me alone, leave me
The newspaper said Fayed, her companion,
had been thrown about 20 yards from the car.
Efforts to revive him on the scene were unsuc-
Diana died in a Paris hospital 3 1/2 hours
after the crash.
Ralph Hingson, chair of the social and
behavioral sciences department of Boston
University's School of Public Health, said the
range of alcohol consumption needed to reach
the 1.8 grams per liter in Paul's blood would be
eight to nine drinks on an empty stomach,
more if he had eaten.
"A person with that level of blood alcohol is
typically found in fatally injured drivers in
auto-related crashes" Hingson said. "A person
at that level has no business being behind the
The newspaper Liberation reported yes-
terday that Paul spent much of the two
hours between his return to work that
Saturday about 10 p.m. and his fatal trip
drinking in one of the Ritz's bars with two
Fayed bodyguards. "I saw him drink two
Ricards (aperitifs)," an unidentified
employee was quoted as saying. "Then they
all got up together. Mr. Paul knocked
against a waiter; then he left, staggering."
The newspaper quoted other anonymous
Ritz employees, however, as saying Paul
had quit drinking some time ago and
behaved normally that evening.
The blood-alcohol tests have been criti-
cized by experts hired by Mohamed Fayed as
not being extensive enough. Yesterday, the
prosecutor's office took pains to explain in
the statement that the third test had been car-
ried out on both a blood sample and on eye
tissue, which is considered more reliable.
The statement was issued "to prevent all
inexact commentary or interpretation," the
Two magistrates are investigating the crash,
for which nine photographers and one motor-
cycle driver face possible charges of "involun-
tary homicide" and failing to aid the victims.
LOMPOC, Calif. (AP) - A pickup truck
and a van full of people collided on a coastal
highway marked by construction barriers,
killing II people and leaving four others
injured Tuesday night, the California
Highway Patrol said.
A couple and their child were believed to
be among the three people in the truck. The
van was believed to be carrying a dozen
Emergency personnel pulled one person,
believed to be the driver, from the van, which
had burst into flames along with the pickup.
Two passengers were found outside the van
and the other occupants of the two vehicles
were reportedly still trapped inside.
The accident happened on scenic Highway
1 at about 9:50 p.m. and both vehicles were
fully engulfed in flames by the time rescue
Authorities couldn't immediately confirm
how many people were in each vehicle or
where they were going, said a CHP dispatch-
er in San Luis Obispo who declined to give
Four victims were taken to nearby hospi-
tals, where emergency personnel said they
were too busy to provide any information.
The crash occurred near the San Julian
Ranch, about 10 miles north of Highway
101, and shut down a 15-mile stretch of
Highway 1. Heavy construction, concrete
barriers and narrow roads are near the crash
