Man saved after being found unconscious lying in the roadway from opioid overdose Wednesday night

On Wednesday, September 7th, 2022, at 11:21 pm, the Turlock Police Department, Turlock Fire Department, and American Medical Response were dispatched to a reported vehicle collision with injuries at the intersection of Fulkerth Rd and N Tully Rd, Turlock, after a man had been found lying unconscious in the roadway, suspected of being struck by a vehicle.

When crews arrived on scene, they found a bystander performing CPR on the man. He was determined to be breathing and had a pulse, so CPR was stopped.

There were no signs that the man had been run over, so crews suspected that he was suffering from an opioid overdose. Narcan was administered and the man woke up a few minutes later. He was ground transported by American Medical Response to a local hospital.
