A man was taken to a Chandler hospital Wednesday for substance abuse after authorities said he fell out of a moving car near Ahwatukee.

Chandler police and fire officials were called to the scene just after 1 p.m. where the man in his 30s reportedly fell out of a vehicle near the northbound ramp of Interstate 10 and Ray Road.

Coincidentally, the man was being driven to the hospital by his mother for substance abuse when police said he fell out of the car in the middle of traffic, stumbled over to the sidewalk and collapsed, said Officer Philip Besse, of Chandler Police.

A Gila River ambulance truck that happened to be driving near the scene saw the man on the sidewalk and pulled over to help, Besse said. Chandler Fire Department officals and another ambulance soon followed.

The man’s mother drove ahead to Chandler Regional Hospital, where the man was sent, while paramedics continued working with him on scene, Besse said.

The man, whose name was not made available, had consumed a large amount of alcohol and was “pretty incoherent.” 

The man was trying to get out of restraints by on-scene paramedics and made more attempts to run away, Besse said.

Police said the man and his mother live in the Fountain Hills area of north Phoenix.
