Police in Hope, Indiana, have released a picture of Erika Hurt as they found her on Saturday afternoon. She appears unresponsive behind the wheel of the vehicle and has a syringe in her hand in the photo. Town Marshal Matthew Tallent says Hurt’s 10-month-old son was crying in the rear of the vehicle.

Hurt was revived with Narcan and taken to the hospital, where she was arrested on charges of child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tallent says child welfare officials were called to the scene and the baby was turned over to Hurt’s mother.

Tallent says Hurt remains in custody on a probation violation. He didn’t know if she had a lawyer.
