LAPEER COUNTY (WJRT) (2/26/2018) - Police used Narcan to revive a 19-year-old Clio man who went into cardiac arrest after crashing in park and ride lot near I-69 on Friday.
A relative of the man called 911 around 7 p.m. to report that he had crashed a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck and was in the parking lot near the Lake Nepessing Road interchange with I-69 in Lapeer County's Elba Township.
The crash actually happened several miles west on eastbound I-69 near Belsay Road in Burton. The impact was hard enough to deploy the airbags inside the pickup truck, but the Clio man continued driving it east on the freeway.
The man finally got off the highway at Lake Nepessing Road and pulled into the park and ride lot, where he went into cardiac arrest. A relative riding with him called 911.
A Lapeer County sheriff deputy who arrived on the scene first found the 19-year-old in full cardiac arrest and took over CPR. The man had no pulse and was starting to change color.
Other officers arrived an AED and Narcan. Both were administered while CPR continued. Police eventually regained the man's pulse and he started breathing on his own again.
Lapeer County EMS transported the man to McLaren Lapeer Region hospital.
Lapeer County police are investigating the alleged overdose while Genesee County police are investigating the crash that knocked down the highway sign.
