DUI Chase Ends With Driver Running Over Self

Comments (0)

A 21-year-old man was accused of driving under the influence and leading police in New Mexico on a chase that finally came to an end with him running over himself.

The man received treatment for minor personal injuries at a hospital in Santa Fe and then taken to Sandoval County Detention Center on charges of aggravated DUI, fleeing a police officer, careless driving, and two other outstanding traffic warrants.

On November 23, Nevada’s “DrunkBuster” hotline received a tip of a possible drunken driver. 

The man’s pickup truck was spotted swerving across both lanes of a highway, alternating between slow and fast speeds, by Nevada State Police Officer Grace Romero. He refused to stop.

Police say the suspect narrowly missed other vehicles before driving through a ditch and a barbed-wire fence before coming to a stop. He attempted to put the car in park, but inadvertently put it in reverse.

Police say as the man was attempting to exit the vehicle, he fell from the open door and the front driver’s side tire ran over both of his legs.
