A 33-year-old man, now deceased, had a blood alcohol concentration of .15% during the fatal crash of a veteran Fresno Police officer in February.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office released the information Friday, saying a blood test confirmed he also had Soma in his system, a muscle relaxant.

Officer Phia Vang was on Highway 180 near McCall Avenue when Pryor was allegedly driving the wrong way and crashed head-on into Vang while on his way home from work.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Vang was a 26-year veteran of the Fresno Police Department.

This was not Pryor’s first fatal crash. He was involved in a collision in September of 2018, where a 29-year-old man was killed.
