Car Crash Outside St. Louis Linked to Overdose

North of Saint Louis, couple overdoses and crashes their car…

In Wood River IL, just north of Saint Louis, paramedics needed to deliver Narcan to two drivers who smashed their car into the guardrail.

Fortunately, they were revived, and there were no other fatalities on busy Illinois Route 3.

Commenting on the crash, and the overdoses, Captain Wade Stahlhut noted “It’s a very sad reality. Unfortunately, when it happens when people are driving that creates another issue and obviously this could’ve been very tragic for the individuals using the opioids.”

Stahlhut estimates his department now handles four to six heroin overdoses a month out on the road.
