On Tuesday, Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies responded to a wreck just east of Brady on U.S. Highway 30.
Two vehicles collided and both drivers were injured, a sheriff’s statement said.
When deputies arrived, they met with the drivers and conducted an investigation.
A black GMC Denali, eastbound in its proper lane, was hit by a westbound white Mitsubishi Mirage that crossed the center line, the sheriff’s office said.
The GMC driver was injured but refused medical treatment.
The Mitsubishi driver was identified as Joshua Baker, 31. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Great Plains Health for treatment.
Deputies believe Baker was under the influence of narcotics. Suspected THC wax was found in his car, as well as other non-specified items, according to the report.
Baker did not have a driver’s license or insurance at the time of the accident.
Criminal charges will be pressed when Baker is released from the hospital, and laboratory tests are conducted of the suspected drugs, the sheriff’s office said Wednesday.
