A driver who fled a crash scene on southbound I680 south of N. Main Street was discovered unresponsive in a nearby warehouse and resuscitated after police following an indoor drone found him in cardiac arrest.
The unidentified driver first came to police attention at 8:55 pm when he lost control of his car and crashed off I680. Police responding to the scene were advised the man had fled into a nearby warehouse.
Police found evidence of a break-in at a building in the 1400 block of Lesnick Lane and used an indoor drone to conduct a search of the structure. The individual was found unresponsive on the second floor of the building, apparently in cardiac arrest.
Officers sent in to take the man into custody applied life-saving measures, reviving him at least twice. It was not immediately known what triggered the cardiac event, though police are investigating the possibility of earlier drug use.
