CONWAY (KDKA) — A woman abandoned at a Beaver County gas station is being treated at a local hospital for a possible overdose.
According to emergency dispatchers, the incident was first reported at 5:40 p.m. at the Marathon Service Station on Route 65 in Conway.
A driver pulled into the gas station, he got out of the car and walked around to the passenger side where he opened the door and pulled out the unconscious woman.
A clerk inside got quite the surprise when the man told her to call an ambulance because he thought the woman overdosed. The driver then took off.
An eyewitness told KDKA-TV News he thought the woman was dead, as he saw her lying on the ground and not moving.
