Details

When police arrived, an officer thought the driver was dead. He was slumped over the wheel of a running car that had stopped across a sidewalk, at the exit of a driveway that empties into the 500 block of University Ave. A college student initially tried to rouse the driver by rapping on the car's windows Monday afternoon. When he could get no response, police were called. The car's doors were locked, and Madison Fire Department personnel gained access to the driver by breaking a window. He was given Narcan and regained consciousness. He said he had used heroin just prior to trying to drive out of the parking lot.
