Officers located the accused unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck with the engine still running.
Officers attempted to wake the accused but he was unresponsive. Officers observed drug paraphernalia in the vehicle and developed grounds to believe the accused was impaired. Officers administered naloxone and the accused was transported to hospital.

The investigation also revealed the accused is a suspended driver.
After being treated at hospital, the accused was arrested. He is charged with impaired driving – alcohol and drugs, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop after an accident and failing to comply with an undertaking by occupying the driver seat of a motor vehicle. He was held for bail court.
