Man arrested for OWI resulting in wife's death

AVON — A Cicero man has been arrested in connection with an accident that killed his wife over the weekend.

Brandon Broady, 26, was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated resulting in death.

As of press time on Tuesday, the Avon Police Department had not released information on the incident.

According to the Hendricks County Flyer's news partne, Fox 59, at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, police were called to Nicole Boulevard in the Austin Lakes subdivision in Avon on a report of an injured person.

Broady and his wife Jessica, also 26, were allegedly involved in an argument after they left a home in the Austin Lakes neighborhood. She reportedly open the passenger door of his truck while the vehicle was in motion and stepped out.

Avon Police found Jessica Broady suffering from significant head injuries and Brandon Broady attempting to give her first aid.

She was transported to IU Health Methodist Hospital where she died on Sunday.

The Marion County coroner believes Jessica was struck by the rear wheels of the pickup truck. Brandon admitted to officers that he had been drinking, and he was charged with the class C felony.

At this point, detectives don’t have any reason to believe Jessica was intentionally run over.

Jessica Broady was a 2006 graduate of Avon High School and a '10 graduate of IUPUI School of Engineering and Technology with a bachelor of science degree in construction engineering management.

She had worked the last five years as a project engineer for Messer Construction, Co.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Carson Gregory Broady; a stepson, Gage M. Broady; and her parents, Mark J. and Elizabeth K. (Nelson) Wager.

Services for Jessica Broady are 11 a.m. Saturday at Plainfield Christian Church, 800 Dan Jones Road. Calling will be for an hour prior to the service.

A scholarship fund has been set up for her son, Carson Broady, and contributions may be made at any Huntington Bank branch. Memorials may also be made to the scholarship fund at the IUPUI School of Engineering at 799 W. Michigan St., Indianapolis, IN 46202 in memory of Jessica L. Broady.
