A woman from Grass Lake is in the hospital tonight after an accident in Jackson early Sunday morning.

The Jackson County Sheriff said the woman pulled out onto Francis Street and crossed over the center lane, hitting a curb and striking a fire hydrant.

When a police sergeant tapped on the woman's window he observed a needle hanging from the driver's arm and what was an apparent heroin overdose.

Paramedics and firefighters responded on scene, they gave the driver medical assistance and took her to Allegiance Hospital.

    Well she got what she had coming. Quit being so stupid people do your drugs at home and stay if you must do them at all. The real smart thing to do is to stop using and then you will be better off.

    Where she will no doubt call Lee or Sam and sue the city for placing a fire hydrant in her way and the auto maker for NOT having in the manual do not place hypodermic needles in your arm while driving.
