DETROIT – A Michigan State Police trooper saved an overdosing driver Monday after they crashed on I-75.

Police said Trooper Meghan Neidy was responding to a reckless driver call when 911 calls were received about a crash in the area where the reckless driver was spotted.

Neidy responded to the crash, where she found the driver unconscious in the driver’s seat. They were unresponsive and not breathing, and there were signs of a drug overdose, police said.

Neidy administered two doses of Narcan and performed sternum rubs on the driver until they regained consciousness.

The driver was transported to a local hospital, where a warrant was issued for a blood draw. When the results return, authorities will seek a warrant for operating while intoxicated, police said.
