A man fell unconscious from a drug overdose while behind the wheel of a stolen vehicle Wednesday in Penticton.

Emergency crews were called around 3:30 p.m. to a report of a man who was passed out behind the wheel of a stalled car near A&W at the intersection of Main Street and Duncan Avenue West, the RCMP said in a press release Thursday.

The man, a 38-year-old from Delta, was revived by paramedics and taken to hospital, and later charged with possessing stolen property, driving while prohibited and breaching court-imposed conditions not to be in a motor vehicle.

His name hasn’t been released pending his first court appearance.
