RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a wrong-way driver crashed into a police cruiser on Long Island and had to be revived with a heroin antidote.

According to Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/21J5K060 ), police say 37-year-old Jeremy Rosendahl veered into the path of oncoming traffic Wednesday and hit a Riverhead police cruiser.

Investigators say they found heroin packets and a needle in Rosendahl’s Jeep and treated him with the heroin antidote naloxone. He was treated at a hospital and released.

Rosendahl is expected to be arraigned Thursday on charges including driving while impaired by drugs, possession of a controlled substance and related offenses.

A police officer also was treated at a hospital and released.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Rosendahl had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
