HIGH POINT, N.C. — A Franklinville man is accused of overdosing on heroin at a High Point intersection while his one-year-old child was in the car, according to the High Point Enterprise.

Cameron Miles Carlson, 21, is charged with driving while impaired, possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse after he was found unconscious in his vehicle with his son still strapped into his car seat.

Upon arrival, officials administered the life-saving drug Narcan to reverse the overdose effects.

Police say they also found needles and swags in the vehicle.

The child is now in the care of his mother.
