A day after three people were killed by an overdosing driver in a crash at a Route 23 gas station, the driver of a school bus carrying children with special needs had to be revived with Narcan after a crash in Newark.

The dozen or so students weren’t injured in the 1 p.m. crash at 14th Avenue and Jones Street.

Responders used Narcan to revive the woman, who police said apparently had overdosed on heroin.
