Police: Truck driver overdoses on heroin, closes I-74

According to police, the driver of a truck who jack-knifed and closed I-74 on Friday had overdosed on heroin.

28-year-old Scotty R. Kinmon was driving westbound on I-74 when his vehicle jack-knifed across all lanes of the highway between Montana Avenue and North Bend Road, closing them for a period of time.

Investigators say that they learned Kinmon ingested an unknown amount of heroin and passed out. The semi-truck that he was driving slowed to a stop and then began rolling backwards on the highway. The truck and trailer then jack-knifed and struck a guardrail.

Other motorists pulled Kinmon from the cab of the truck and began CPR. A Hamilton County Sheriff's deputy and a Green Township Police Officer arrived to the scene and administered Narcan to Kinmon who then became fully responsive.

Kinmon was transported to Mercy West Hospital by the Green Township Fire Department for evaluation and then was later transported to the Hamilton County Justice Center where he awaits arraignment on charges of OVI, failure to maintain control of his vehicle and operation of a commercial motor vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance.

According to Hamilton County court records, Kinmon previously overdosed in his truck on July 24, 2017 and Kinmon has a warrant out regarding that case.

Investigators say that they learned Kinmon ingested an unknown amount of heroin and passed out. The semi-truck that he was driving slowed to a stop and then began rolling backwards on the highway. The truck and trailer then jack-knifed and struck a guardrail.
