Connecticut Troopers rescue overdosed man
As the opioid crisis continues its toll, there are increasing numbers of drugged driving incidents in which the driver overdoses while behind the wheel.
As reported by the CT Post, Connecticut State Police are reminding residents that driving on drugs or alcohol can be a danger not only your yourself but other people as well, after a suspected overdose incident occurred on I-91 Tuesday.
State troopers from Troop H-Hartford and a Department of Transportation Service Patrol responded to reports of a disabled motor vehicle in the left shoulder on I-91 northbound at exit 32A in Hartford around 4:43 p.m. Tuesday.
Upon arrival, they found a small Ford pickup truck stopped against the barrier with the brake lights illuminated. When troopers approached the truck, they found the male operator unresponsive and locked inside with his foot on the brake. The truck was still running and in drive, police said.
Police said that troopers also saw suspected heroin in plain view near the operator.
