Officers arrived to the scene to find an “extremely lethargic” and “in and out of consciousness” driver. The man is not identified in the police report. His wife, police said, was also in the car and was nearly unconscious, but told police she was fine.
“It became pretty apparent the driver was under the influence of some type of narcotics where they had to administer Narcan to the driver to revive him,” Roswell police Officer Lisa Holland told Channel 2.
The driver’s condition and the emergency treatment prohibited any blood from being drawn, according to the report. Police noted in the report that the wife had signs of an overdose, but they did not administer Narcan. The driver was given two citations for hit-and-run, according to the report.
The couple was taken to the hospital for treatment.
“I think it's upsetting that they can't be charged,” Willis said. “…they were endangering a lot of people.”
