ELKHART -- Two police officers and two emergency responders were sent to the hospital for chemical decontamination Sunday morning after assisting in cleaning up a mobile meth lab in Elkhart.
A WSBT reporter on the scene said that it happened at Vistula and High Streets Street in Elkhart just before 10 a.m.
Officers stopped a vehicle in the area for a routine traffic stop. Once the officer approached the driver's side window, he noticed a strong odor associated with meth production and instantly became ill as a result.
Extra officers were called out to the scene to assist. The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital, as well as the initial officer who stopped the car, an assisting officer and two emergency responders.
