There are new details in a deadly crash that killed a Lakewood man and his son.

An autopsy report just released by the Garfield County sheriff's department shows 41-year-old James Blissett had pot in his system and a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit.

He was driving when his car went off the road north of Glenwood Springs.

Investigators say his 9-year-old son Jessy also died in the crash.

The two were on the way home from a hunting trip when their car plunged 700 feet over a cliff.
