The suspect in a robbery was fleeing from police, when he crossed into oncoming traffic and collided head on with John Doe’s truck, severely injuring Doe, and killing himself. Mr. Doe was airlifted to the local hospital burn unit.

Police investigating the robbery and the ensuing accident demanded that hospital personnel draw blood from the victim, John Doe.

The nurse told police that she was not allowed to draw blood from an unconscious patient. She further stated that police did not have a warrant and could therefore not collect blood samples from a badly injured patient. Furthermore, she reiterated that the patient was not conscious, so he could not give consent.
