SALEM - Police said driving after heroin use led to a one-vehicle accident and drug charges for two people Sunday afternoon.

Salem patrol officers responded to a single-car crash at 115 North Policy St., and said they found Jeffrey Morris, 50 of Portsmouth, unconsious after a drug overdose. He was issued Narcan at the scene.

Witnesses said they saw a woman unpack things from the car and flee the scene with Morris still unconscious.

Aiyla Griffin, 22 of Dover, was found later on the Salem Water Treatment Plant with heroin and items used to inject heroin.

Morris was processed on one count of driving while intoxicated, operating after being declared a habitual offender and open container. Morris has three prior DWI convictions.

Griffin was charged with criminal trespass, possession of controlled drug (heroin), falsifying physical evidence and breach of bail. She was out on bail for possession of a controlled drug charge on Nov. 25.
