A prosecutor in Dubai has reportedly said that high speed and drinking were involved in a Ferrari crash that killed a Toronto boxer, his cousin, a survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and her university roommate.

Salah Bu Farousha, the head of Dubai Traffic Public Prosecution, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that an investigation continued into the crash which happened on Sunday near Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers district.

He was quoted as saying that all those killed in the crash of the two-seat yellow Ferrari had been drinking.

Victoria McGrath, 23, an American student who survived the Boston Marathon bombing two years ago was one of four who were killed, along with her college roommate, Priscilla Perez Torres and two Canadian men.

McGrath had received severe shrapnel injuries to her left leg from one of the bombs placed near the finishing line of the Boston Marathon in April 2013.

The Boston Globe reported that the two American women were on their way to Bali for a spring break trip.
