The Trooper arrived and found an unresponsive male with decreased respirations in the driver’s seat. The Trooper administered two doses of NARCAN before the victim became responsive. The driver and passenger who also appeared to be under the influence of Illegal drugs were transported to a local area hospital for treatment.
