A Crown Point resident survived a single-vehicle accident near the 13-mile marker of I-80 in Gary/Lake Station on Thursday thanks to the effort of State Troopers, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at approximately 4 p.m. Shane C. Evans, 44, was discovered unresponsive on I-80 by State Troopers Will Carlson and James Brausseur after a personal injury crash.

Police said a good samaritan was administering CPR with the assistance of Hoosier Helpers when Carlson took over and Brasseur assembled his issued NARCAN kit. Two doses of Naloxone were then administered to Evans who regained consciousness as he was being transported to NorthLake Hospital in Gary, police said.

“The lifesaving ‘Narcan’ training that Indiana State Troopers received was crucial in the reviving of Mr. Evans. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of passing motorist David Recio, Hoosier Helper’s and quick actions of Trp. Brasseur, Trp. Carlson and Lake County EMS, a life was saved,” the ISP said in a news release this morning.
