Overdosing Driver Arrested for 9th OWI along I-41

Nobody is injured – but a person has been arrested after
overdosing while driving on Interstate 41 this week. The Washington County
Sheriff’s Office responded to reports of a reckless driver around 6:45pm Monday
night. The vehicle was apparently swerving back and forth across all three
lanes of traffic without its lights on. By the time deputies located the
vehicle, it had already side-swiped a semi – and was still going north on the
interstate. The vehicle eventually came to a stop after hitting a median cable
barrier. Narcan was administered and the driver was taken to a hospital before
being taken into custody for 9th Offense OWI, Felony Bail Jumping,
and Possession of Heroin.
