BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Boardman woman is facing charges for a crash Tuesday on South Avenue that took out a fire hydrant and sent water spilling out into the street.
Police said when they arrived at the scene, both the driver and a passenger were unconscious.
After first responders gave them an opioid-reversal drug, police said the driver, 45-year-old Danielle Tchoryk, admitted to snorting heroin right before the crash.
According to a police report, Tchoryk told police she “snorted a line” in the Save-A-Lot parking lot and was heading to Walmart when “things started going black.”
Police searched the vehicle and found a broken syringe and a bag containing residue, according to the report.
Tchoryk was charged with OVI and failure to control.
As a result of the crash, South Avenue was shut down temporarily while crews worked to fix the fire hydrant.
