Driver hits house, arrested for heroin use


MADISON (WKOW) -- Police arrested a Portage man Monday afternoon after he rolled through a stop sign, hit a car and crashed into a house. Police arrested the man on suspicion of operating while under the influence of heroin.

A witness ran to the truck and found the man lying unconscious inside. He was blue in the face and not breathing, so another witness performed CCR and the man's breathing returned.

Across the street, a woman was found lying down after an apparent seizure. She said she had been inside the truck, as well, but got out because she was feeling sick.

Officers believe both overdosed on heroin. Blood tests are pending.
