A 32-year-old man who crashed into a motorcyclist in New Baltimore was in possession of multiple illegal prescription pills, police said.
At approximately 4:45 p.m. Sept. 28, the GMC truck driver was seen by other motorists swerving before changing lanes at the same time as a Harley Davidson driver on Green Street north of County Line and crashing into the motorcycle. The impact caused the motorcyclist to get thrown about 15 feet from his bike, fracturing his left foot, according to a New Baltimore police report.
When approaching the truck driver, the officer noticed him slurring words with pinpoint pupils indicating drug use. He admitted to having two Vicodin pills in his vehicle. Police asked him if he had a script for the pills and he told them he did not; he said he had found them in a Dumpster, the report states.
He told police he took two of Vicodin--once in the morning and again in the afternoon--that day. After failing a field sobriety test, police searched his vehicle with consent and found two Lortab pills, the report states.
Police arrested him on suspicion of operating while under the influence of drugs and possession of analogues.
