Heavier than normal patrols lead to a life being saved

Late last night, state police responded to what appeared to be a stalled vehicle on the river bridge.  Patrols on this section of 270 had been heavier than normal as it was an holiday weekend, especially during the overnight hours.  (One of the admins personally witnessed two people get pulled over on Sunday night along 270.)  Upon arriving, the driver was passed out, forcing emergency crews to block the eastbound lanes.

No additional information has been released, due to the privacy laws and the suspicious nature of the incident.  Expect heavier than normal patrols by the state police to continue, as weekend work is expected to begin later this summer.

UPDATE 6/10/16:  Sadly, the man involved in the incident passed away on 6/7/16.  While we have a policy of keeping the victims anonymous, the victim’s family made a Facebook post wanting their story to be shared.  This incident is still under investigation.
