Deaths from Opioids Overdose Keep Rising in the US

The opioid crisis leaves no community in the U.S. untouched. It's nationwide, but it hits small towns and rural states particularly hard.

In tiny Bellevue, Ohio, population 8,000, Koriann Evans had just gotten fentanyl from her dealer. Fentanyl is a drug dozens of times more powerful than heroin, and Evans couldn't wait to get home to take it so she took it in her car and was driving home with her two young children in the back seat when she started to overdose.

One of her daughters asked if she was OK. "Mommy can't breathe," Evans told her. Evans managed to hit the brakes before passing out. She was lucky. She was taken to a hospital where doctors revived her before it was too late.

Evans has since stopped taking opioids.

"I almost killed my kids. I didn't have it (the car) in park. I could have flipped that car and killed them or I could have killed other people," she said.
