Prior to his trial on a charge of vehicular homicide, appellee filed a motion in limine seeking a ruling that the results of a blood-alcohol test were not admissible. This appeal is from the grant of that motion.
1. Appellee has filed a motion to dismiss this appeal on the ground that the grant of a motion in limine, as opposed to a motion to suppress, is not directly appealable by the State under OCGA 5-7-1
. That issue is controlled adversely to appellee by State v. Strickman, 253 Ga. 287
, 288 (319 SE2d 864
) (1984), where, after a discussion of the function of a motion in limine, the Supreme Court held that "if a defendant moves before trial to exclude evidence on the ground that it was obtained in violation of law, the grant of such a motion -- whatever its name is subject to direct appeal on the part of the State."
