Delta Police Administer Naloxone During Traffic Stop

The Canadian Press, 10 Nov, 2017
  • Delta Police Administer Naloxone During Traffic Stop
On November 09, 2017 at approximately 9:00 p.m., Delta Police observed a vehicle travelling northbound in the southbound lanes in the 8000 blk of 120th Street.  The Delta officer pulled the vehicle over. 
 
 
The driver provided a plausible explanation for the driving pattern indicating that, he had worked a long day and was simply tired and on his way home.
 
 
There were no blatant indicators of impairment upon first interaction with the driver, so the officer was going to issue a violation ticket based on the dangers this driving pattern presented to everyone on the roadway.
 
 
Once the officer had completed the documents and returned to the vehicle to serve the violation ticket, the driver was now slumped over the wheel and unresponsive and displayed signs of overdose. The officer administered Naloxone and the driver immediately became more responsive. Ambulance was called and the driver was transported to hospital for treatment relative to a drug overdose.
 
 
The driver was issued a 24 hour driving prohibition and the Delta Police are continuing with their investigation of impaired driving.
 
 
This serves of another example of the dangers of impaired driving that are not just limited to alcohol but extend to drugs as well.
 
 
This situation could have ended tragically on multiple levels that could have impacted many last night. Fortunately the officer was out patrolling the streets and had Naloxone at the ready.
