One dead, one hospitalized in suspected New London overdoses
New London — One person died and another was hospitalized Thursday in separate suspected drug overdoses.
About 4:10 p.m. police and firefighters were called to Dunkin' Donuts at 175 Broad St. for a report of an unresponsive man in the bathroom.
The man, in his early 20s, was presumed dead at the scene.
Deputy Police Chief Peter Reichard said while it appears to be a possible overdose, the cause of death remains under investigation. An autopsy is planned at the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Earlier in the day, about 2 p.m., police and firefighters responded to reports of a minor motor vehicle crash in the area of 65 Shaw St.
Firefighters found an unconscious female on the sidewalk and administered the opioid reversal drug Narcan, according to Fire Battalion Chief Edward "Ted" Sargent.
The woman was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital and later listed in good condition.
