An SUV with a child in the back seat nearly flipped over a steep hillside in Carrick, PA, on Monday afternoon when the driver and his passenger overdosed on suspected heroin while driving, according to police.

Zone 3 police responded to Nobles Lane for a report of two people overdosing in a vehicle, followed by a report that the SUV had driven off, according to the criminal complaint.

Officers found the Chevy Blazer crashed off the side of Cloverdale Street. The vehicle was leaning precariously toward the hillside adjacent to the road, the complaint said. “The vehicle appeared as if it was going to tip over on the passenger side at any moment,” Officer Gabriel Figueroa wrote.

The driver and the passenger were slumped over, and the driver — later identified as Mark Cuda — was turning blue, according to the complaint. A young child sat crying for help in the right rear seat. Because the Blazer was a two-door, police first had to get the driver and passenger out to get to the child.

Cuda, 32, is charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, one count of driving under the influence, one count of child endangerment, one count of reckless driving and drug violations. Wible, 34, faces drug charges, reports.
