Emergency Personnel Administer 4 Doses of Narcan After Man Crashes Into Utility Pole in Hollywood

July 24, 2019

On Tuesday, July 23, 2019, at approximately 10:20 a.m., police fire, and rescue personnel responded to 26326 Cherry Lane in Hollywood, for the reported motor vehicle accident with one person unconscious.

Police arrived on the scene to find a single vehicle off the roadway and into a utility pole.

The vehicle was occupied by the adult male operator who was located unconscious in the vehicle.

Deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and a Trooper from the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrick administered three doses of naloxone (Narcan) at the scene. Firefighters and emergency medical technicians arrived shortly after and administered at least one additional dose of Narcan.

The patient was transported by ambulance to the MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown where Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 7 landed and transported the patient to an area trauma center with unknown injuries.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriffs Office is currently investigating the crash, and updates will be provided when they become available.

    what a waste. both the beautiful car and the waste of the Narcan. i feel no sorrow for the individual that made his/her own choice!

    • Charles on July 24, 2019 at 10:12 am

      It was a nice car until the owner messed it up with those gaudy rims and tinted tail lights

        Those rims look vicious, what are you talking about? Better than those ghetto chrome ones brotha man always has.(Yes I know brotha is spelled wrong)

      A waste of public resources, anyone who drives under the influence of that many drugs puts us all at risk and does not deserve to live, he made the choices, he needs to suffer the consequences.

    Look at those cheesy tinted tail lights- you can tell someone is low class

    • Joe on July 24, 2019 at 8:18 am

      Haha, I looked the car over and thougtht the same thing. The lugnut “spikes” and license plate surround confirm this. I’m willing to bet that this individual gets another shot of Narcan in the future. These junkies usually fail to learn / sober up after their first dance with death. They’re weak-willed people with low impulse control and the inability to logically assess risk/reward.

    4 doses of Narcan?!?! He needs a .9 mL shot of lead if he doesn’t care. These fuggin druggies are going to kill innocent people one day, why aren’t we allowed to take em out before hand?

    We dont know that this man was under the influence. My grandmother was found unconscious and the first thing the paramedics did was narc an her… all they know is he was unconscious.. please let’s not jump to conclusions! Narcan seems to be a first thought now and days for anyone that’s non responsive

    • Lets party with Anon's grand mamma on July 24, 2019 at 11:33 am

      Considering it worked like it was supposed to, albeit after the 4th shot of it, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess he was high

    • Critical Thinker on July 24, 2019 at 12:49 pm

      That’s exactly what I thought when I read this – maybe the Narcan didn’t work because he wasn’t high… Maybe he was unconscious from the accident.

      You can usually get by with one dose of Narcan if the person is on Heroin. With other drugs, like Fentanyl, which is 50 times more potent than Heroin, it can take multiple doses of Narcan. And Fentanyl is being added to Heroin more and more often because it is easier to acquire. Even worse, Sufentanil (5-10 times more potent than Fentanyl, and Carfentanil (100 times more potent than Fentanyl) are appearing the the area now too. Both of those can be transferred to the Emergency workers by merely touching the white powder. Narcan may not be available in large enough quantities to make a difference.

  11. Kassi on July 24, 2019 at 9:02 am

    Im not supporting this decision because it was not smart but lets not sit here and put someone down about their decisions and car. It was not a waste of narcan someones life was saved and maybe now they will turn it around .

    • Reality on July 24, 2019 at 11:36 am

      There are two outcomes here. Some people are realistic and they will say “waste of Narcan, he is just going to continue to use drugs”. Other people live their lives in a fantasy world of how they think things “should be”, not how things really are. So you see this story and think, maybe, just maybe this will be the thing to turn this man’s life around. Sorry Kassi, thats a really positive outlook and it would be awesome if it happens, but statistically its just not realistic. Its sad that it isnt realistic, but thats the world we live in. People who are addicts dont just kick the addiction. And when someone is able to fight it, and get into recovery/sobriety, statistically they will relapse at some point.

  12. Ryan on July 24, 2019 at 9:15 am

    You my friend are a complete idiot for this comment. Since when does a tail light mean someone is a low life? Not that he/she isn’t but you really sound dumb.

    • Charles on July 27, 2019 at 5:11 pm

      First off, I didn’t say low life- I said low class, meaning anyone with class would not do something to their car to make it look that ridiculous. Secondly, if you could read then you would have known that. Typical public school education…

    This person has a family! He or she is a person! Have your own veiw but think about the people this is hurting. No one can control anyone but themselves yet when something like this happens to someone we love seem the loved ones pay the price. Be mindful of your words. There is only one that can judge and its surely none of us. Just thankfully no one else was harmed.

    • Enough on July 24, 2019 at 11:42 am

      Your last sentence says it all. Because it acknowledges that this is a GIGANTIC issue. Someone could have lost their life from this persons decision. It is infuriating for people to know they can live their life the right way, never cause any harm to anyone else, help those in need, and still leave their house every day knowing that they might get killed by a junkie behind the wheel of an automobile. The number of pathetic losers in this country has skyrocketed to the point that the majority of people use drugs, and the minority are sober. Sad.

    Narcan is a life saving drug that stops the body’s reaction to opioids. That indicates they had evidence this dude was using… Everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but just because you’re stupid, does not mean you deserve to die.

Talk to your children and friends about drugs and how they can ruin your life and reach out and try to help and guide these addicts. After all they did not wake up one day and wished they could be a addict. We all need to stop bashing and try to help these people with the disease of addiction.
