    The Mazda was totaled in the crash.

    A judge ruled Thursday that a North County teenager will remain on probation for his role in a drunk driving crash that killed one of his friends.

     

    The teenage driver lost control of his car in Rancho Santa Fe in October 2009. The vehicle overturned, killing 17-year-old Alex Capozza and injuring another passenger, Jaime Arnold. According to prosecutors, the driver had eight or nine beers prior to the crash.
