Kenny Lee, 53, was the big shot owner of the multi-million-dollar chain, Lee’s Discount Liquor, when he died after plowing his van into a Ford F-250 on US Highway 95 on November 19, 2021.
Lee’s toxicology report recently revealed that that his blood level was at 0.22 percent when he crashed, more than triple the 0.8 percent alcohol limit for men in Nevada.
Evidence from the crash, including Lee’s toxicology report and incident report wasn’t available until recently, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

There are about 23 operating stores remaining throughout Nevada
On the day he died, Lee was driving his van in and out of the designated lane and into ongoing traffic.
The Ford F-250 driver attempted to move off to the side to avoid slamming into Lee but ended up nearly colliding head on as the CEO plowed into the truck’s side.
Scene picture showed Lee’s white van totaled with boxes pouring out of the car.
The driver of the truck and the passenger suffered minor injuries.
At the time, investigators didn’t believe that impairment was a factor in the crash.
Police didn’t release the records of Lee’s crash until more than a year after his death. Nevada Highway Patrol officials had told the local news outlet that they couldn’t release the details without proper approval from administrators.

The CEO took over the multi-million dollar liquor store family business from Hae Un Lee, his father, only a few months before his death in August.
Lee joked that he would sell the more than 23 stores throughout Nevada when his father died rather than taking over, according to his biography on the liquor chain’s website.
He was described as being ‘charismatic’ and his relationship with his father was referred to as an ‘extraordinary bond.’
‘No greater human being is ever going to walk the Earth again,’ Ron Principo, VP of Operations for the liquor chain said.
The liquor chain was later taken over by Lee’s wife, Nami Lee, who hopes to expand the chain into 30 stores.
