Washington County Narcan Save

A Washington County Sheriff’s deputy helped save a 36-year-old Town of Addison man’s life by administering Narcan to the man during a traffic stop. The driver had been stopped for driving “all over the road” and nearly hitting several cars in the area of State Highway 167 and Scenic Road in the Village of Richfield. During the stop the driver began to show signs of an opioid OD and the deputy administered Narcan while waiting for an ambulance arrive. The man was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital and after medical clearance was taken to jail for felony bail jumping and his third Operating While Intoxicated charge.
