Two killed in single-car accident Thursday night

— Two are dead as a result of a single-car accident on Arkansas 10 and Garrison Road outside of Little Rock on Thursday.

The Pulaski County sheriff's office responded to a report of the wreck about 11:19 p.m. Thursday.

Deputies said they found a red sedan in a tree line by the road. The police report states the passenger in the vehicle was pronounced dead on the scene. Paramedics attempted to revive the driver at the scene before taking him to Baptist Regional Medical Center in Little Rock, where he was pronounced dead.

The Pulaski County coroner's office identified the driver as 32-year-old Daniel Burghart and the passenger as 33-year-old Aimee Burghart.

Deputies said a bag with ten bottles of Propofol and a bag containing a laptop and other personal items were found at the scene.

An online registry, npidb.org, lists Daniel Burghart as a certified registered nurse anesthetist at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock.

The bag containing the laptop was given to Daniel Burghart's family while the bag containing Propofol was submitted as evidence.

The coroner's office said toxicology reports would take eight to 10 weeks to be completed.

What were they doing with ten bottles of Propofol?

Propofol - the drug that killed off Michael Jackson.

Propofol that is a seriously and tightly controlled drug, that is suppose to only be administered by medical professionals with life support available.

Anyone transporting that kind of quantity of Propofol is up to no good - and is likely tied in with some serious players - that laptop should never have been released until it could be combed for evidence. Big mistake on the part of law enforcement.

Michael...the deceased was a CRNA. The couple was about as far from "someone who is up to no good" as you can get. Imagine how the friends and family may feel when your self righteous opinion about someone you have no facts about is read. Daniel and Aimee were astounding people. That road is highly dangerous and filled with wildlife, a more probable explanation than suggesting the deceased were drug peddlers.

i agree with Goldfish's statements. Dan and Aimee were the nicest people I have met. Honest, kind and hard working would be some of the words i would use to describe them. Dan carrying propofol has to do with his job. it is a prescribed drug but not a controlled one like hydrocodone or morphine which cannot be taken out of a hospital. please dont make any further assumptions about this man.

CRNA = Clinical Registered Nurse Anesthetist. According to another website, he performed anesthesia in rural hospitals. Condolences to all those affected by the loss of this young couple.

The father that passed was a CRNA. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. They were traveling to his parents home with their daughter. He had the right to have his equipment with him because he worked in the field. Just stop, if you don't know what is going on.
