JASPER — Police administered an overdose medication to an unresponsive driver after a crash Thursday.
The Jasper Police Department was dispatched at 11:55 a.m. to the Westwood Boulevard and Village Court intersection after a report of a car-versus-pole accident.
Officers arrived to find a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am facing east in the northbound lane of Westwood Boulevard. The car’s occupant, Chase C. Langdon, 36, 3828 N. Portersville Road, Jasper, was unresponsive and not breathing normally, police said.
Based on Langdon’s demeanor, police said, he appeared to be under the influence of drugs. Officers administered NARCAN, a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose, and Langdon subsequently came back to a more normal state, according to Jasper police.
Police then began to investigate the circumstances surrounding Langdon’s wreck.
Officers determined Langdon had used heroin just prior to driving and was also still in possession of heroin and a syringe.
After being medically cleared at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, Langdon was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 4:28 p.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 5 felony count of unlawful possession of a syringe, a Level 6 felony count of heroin possession and a misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
