Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis
frantically called 911 Tuesday night -- after her friend suffered what appeared to be some kind of overdose in the backseat of the actress' car ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... paramedics responded at around 9pm in Venice, CA after receiving Curtis' phone call ... and found her friend passed out in the backseat.

According to sources, Curtis' friend had suffered a violent reaction after mixing alcohol with some kind of prescription Rx.

We're told Curtis initially tried to drive her friend to the hospital -- hence why the friend was in the backseat -- but she decided to call 911 instead when the situation took a turn for the worse.

Paramedics took the woman to a nearby hospital. She was treated and released hours later.

Didn't she do this with another friend a couple years ago?

Old people + medication + alcohol + senior moments = overdoses. As an EMT, I can't begin to tell you how often this happens! Stop giving prescription narcotics to every old person who asks for it...they seriously forget they take that shiz!

Sounds like Jamie is out there saving lives of people who suffer from addiction. That's what program people do if she has one.

Yep mixing booze and drugs is not a good thing or a smart thing to do. Your ticker inside your chest will cut off without advance notice.

Why can't tmz ban these idiots posting ads on here? I have to go past 4 or 5 ads to see one comment. It is hurting your site.
