VIDEO: Deputy uses cruiser to stop unconscious driver on US 35 in Jefferson Twp.

A driver found unconscious and slumped over the wheel of a still-moving SUV on Monday, Feb. 21 was taken to a local hospital after a deputy used a cruiser to get the vehicle to stop.

Deputies were called around 9:30 a.m. to U.S. 35 and Infirmary Road in Jefferson Twp., where deputies found an SUV with an unconscious driver rolling around 10 mph westbound on U.S. 35, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the SUV rolled through the intersection and ended up facing the wrong way in the eastbound lanes, so one deputy pulled his cruiser in front of the SUV to stop it.

Deputies had to break the SUV’s window to get to the driver, who was still unconscious. The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The highway was shut down for several minutes, and the incident remains under investigation, the sheriff’s office said.
