Drummond called to turn himself in to police, who had a warrant for his arrest stemming from 2013 charges for possession of heroin and marijuana in Addison County.

He is due to answer the charges in court on March 18.

Singh was not hurt, and the truck sustained minor damage. Route 17 was closed for about three hours while the truck was removed from the roadway.

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Addison Fire Department and MiddState Towing.
