Sweden, N.Y. (WHAM) - A Holley man was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury for a crash in May in which he had to be revived with two doses of Narcan.

Jason Thompson, 40, was indicted on nine charges after police say he crashed into three cars and a building in Sweden.

On May 5, Thompson rear ended two different vehicles in his black pickup truck while driving up Lake Road from Route 31.

After hitting those cars, Thompson reportedly kept driving and crashed into a third vehicle heading in the opposite direction. That car spun around and stopped on the grass. Thompson's pickup truck went over the curb, over the grass and crashed into the Abbott’s on Lake Road, bringing it to a stop.

That third vehicle hit by Thompson's pickup truck had a man, woman and a young child - all of whom were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital.

Thompson was found to be unconscious by EMTs and witnesses on scene and was immediately given Narcan by EMTs. While being taken to the hospital, Thompson was given Narcan a second time.

On Tuesday, a Monroe County grand jury indicted Thompson on charges of second-degree assault, second-degree vehicular assault, DWI, DWI with a BAC of .08 or higher, two counts of DWAI-drugs, DWAI by the combined influence of drugs and alcohol, criminal possession of a controlled substance, leaving the scene of a property damage incident without reporting it, and refusal to take a breath test.
