Phoenix, AZ (June 29, 2019) – A Paulden man was arrested and charged on Thursday, June 27th, after his involvement in a deadly auto accident earlier this year.
According to Chino Valley police, 44-year-old Scott Enyart Jr. was booked into the Yavapai County Jail on suspicion of two counts of second-degree homicide, two counts of endangerment, and one count of driving under the influence.
Crime lab blood test results show that Enyart had a sedative and a narcotic painkiller in his system at the time of the auto accident on March 18th, which killed two Chino Valley High School seniors, 17-year-old Sarah Buntin and 18-year-old Nicole Nanni.
The auto accident occurred around 3:45 p.m., with one of the vehicles rolling over on Highway 89 near Bethany Lane in Chino Valley.
