PHOENIX (AP) - A suspect in a deadly drunken driving crash in April has turned himself in to authorities.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office says the crash took place on April 11 as 55-year-old James Brown’s car was found overturned with him bleeding on the ground. The other passenger was trapped unconscious inside the vehicle near Black Canyon City.

Brown received medical treatment at a Phoenix hospital following the crash, and test results revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.176 percent, more than twice the legal limit. Brown was charged with manslaughter and driving under the influence. Deputies found numerous beer cans and liquor bottles near the crash.

Spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn says Brown was later released from the hospital, and a warrant was issued after blood tests came back, witnesses were interviewed, and a grand jury indicted him.
