A Washington Township, PA, police officer accidentally inhaled a suspected narcotic during an investigation early Sunday morning.

Around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Washington Township police were called to a one-car accident on Route 356.

Police say a second officer from Washington Township was called to the scene. He went inside the center console of the car to look for the driver’s ID. That’s when he became exposed to a substance police say was either heroin or fentanyl, KDKA TV reports.

After inhaling the substance, police say that officer, whose name hasn’t been released, began to have a fast heartbeat and his chest started burning. Murrsyville Medic One was called and administered two doses of Narcan before he was taken to Forbes Regional Hospital.

The officer was treated and released.
