TROY – Drug use may have been a contributing factor in a single-vehicle crash on State Route 41 near Washington Road just after 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
Emergency responders were called on a report of a car into a pole with two people slumped over in the front seat. A sheriff’s deputy who arrived first told other responding personnel that a possible drug overdose may have been involved.

A search was made for the possible second victim but no one was located.
The crash in under investigation by the Miami County Sheriff’s Office.
