Police Report: Police book CV man for DUI after head-on collision

CHINO VALLEY - CVPD police booked a 49-year-old Chino Valley man into Yavapai County Jail Saturday on DUI charges after he caused a head-on collision in the 1100 block of north Highway 89.

No one was injured in the accident.

At 1:55 p.m. Saturday, officers arrived at the accident scene and determined that Curtis Block drove his four-door station wagon into a four-door sedan occupied by Leslie Timper, 57, of Chino Valley.

The collision pushed Timper's vehicle backward where it subsequently collided with a van driven by a 16-year-old CV resident who was exiting a private driveway.

Both Timper and the16-year-old refused medical treatment at the scene.But paramedics transported to the hospital two children, ages 3 and 5, who were riding in Block's vehicle when the accident occurred. Both children were in child-restraint seating.

Police later arrested and booked Block into county jail on several charges, including aggravated DUI, extreme DUI, criminal damage and endangerment.

A preliminary breath test officers gave to Block indicated his breath alcohol level was in excess of .20, more than two times the legal limit.

Garcia said Block could face additional charges after the Yavapai County Attorney's Office reviews the case.
