FENTANYL OVERDOSE LEADS TO CRASH AND ARREST

When officers arrived on the scene, they observed an unresponsive male in the driver’s seat of a Chevrolet Silverado. Witnesses reported to officers that they observed this truck crash into the ditch and get stuck at which time they observed that the driver’s foot was still on the gas pedal with the engine still revving. During this time one of the witnesses reported that they reached into the truck and placed the truck into the park position for safety reasons. 

Officers then began life-saving efforts using Narcan, which resulted in the driver, Charles Broan, age 27 of Prescott Valley, coming to and being transported by ambulance to Yavapai Regional Medical Center. 

Upon investigation, it was learned Broan had been using Fentanyl while driving, resulting in him overdosing,  becoming unconscious, and crashing his vehicle into a ditch.  

Broan was charged with DUI Drugs, Aggravated DUI, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and was booked into Yavapai County Jail. Additional drug test results are pending which may result in additional charges. 

Fentanyl continues to plague our community. Prescott Valley Police are trained in Narcan and other life-saving measures which undoubtedly saved the life of Broan.  

Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, and 911 for emergencies.

Yavapai County Silent witness is 1-800-932-3232.
