The Highway Patrol says troopers received a call just after 4 p.m. Thursday for an oversize semi-truck driver in need of assistance on I-94 at mile marker 350. When troopers arrived, they learned that a Ford Edge SUV had failed to yield when merging onto I-94 westbound from the University Drive exit and struck the semi, which was in the right lane of I-94 westbound. Minor damage was sustained to the SUV.

Troopers detected the odor of marijuana coming from the Ford SUV. The vehicle's driver, 25-year-old David Sander, of Stone Mountain, Georgia, was found to be in possession of 33 M-30 Fentanyl pills, marijuana, scales and drug paraphernalia. A customized Glock 19, containing a loaded magazine, was also located.

Sanders was charged with Class A Felony delivery of a controlled substance - Fentanyl, while in the possession of a firearm; Class A Misdemeanor DUI Drugs with a minor present while intoxicated; and infraction charges for possession of marijuana and marijuana drug paraphernalia.
