PENN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was taken to the hospital after a deputy revived him using Narcan and CPR following a crash in Cass County Friday. 

It happened around 2:59 p.m. at the intersection of M-60 and Calvin Center Road. 

A vehicle was traveling east on M-60 when another vehicle disregarded a stop sign at the intersection, causing a crash.  

A passenger in the vehicle traveling east had minor head pain after the crash, but was treated on scene and released.  

The driver of the vehicle that ran through the stop sign passed out shortly after the crash and had to be revived by a Cass County Sheriff’s Office deputy using Narcan and CPR. 

Authorities said the driver admitted to using heroin prior to passing out. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment. 

Alcohol and drugs are believed to be a factor in the crash.
