A 24-year-old man who apparently overdosed on heroin was revived with Narcan and then arrested after causing a traffic accident Tuesday night in Atlantic City, police said.
Daniel Cormier, of Little Egg Harbor, was charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and cited with motor vehicle infractions. He was released on a summons.
Just before 10 p.m., emergency personnel responded to a traffic accident in the 1100 block of Arctic Avenue and found Cormier unconscious behind the wheel of a vehicle that had rear-ended another car stopped at a red light.
Firefighters administered Narcan and revived Cormier, who was then taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Division for treatment. Police said they found several bags of heroin in Cormier’s vehicle. Narcan is an antidote to opioid overdoses.
