Indiana State Police Lowell Post reports the driver was heading north on I-65, three-miles south of the DeMotte/Roselawn exit, when he reported having trouble breathing and called for help. State Police report the driver was given medical attention at the scene. A further investigation and field test conducted on a substance in the man's possession reportedly tested positive for cocaine.
