Finally a drunk driving story with a pretty happy ending:
A police chase that started in Standish ended after a crash in Baldwin, with the driver being run over by his own vehicle, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Andrew Feeney pulled over a white pickup at 2:15 a.m. Sunday for driving erratically, but when he approached the truck on foot near Routes 113 and 107 in Baldwin, it sped off, said Capt.. Don Goulet of the sheriff’s office.
Feeney chased the pickup, which reached speeds of 90 mph, to River Road in Baldwin, where it lost control and crashed into a stand of trees.
Kenneth Wright, 27, of Depot Road in Baldwin got out of the pickup and tried to run, but he neglected to put it in park and the truck rolled over him, Goulet said. The internal report on the incident does not indicate what part of Wright the truck rolled over, Goulet said
All we hear about these days are drunk drivers killing people are injuring folks other than themselves. It’s nice to see a dumb schmuck get hit by his own car for a change.
The best part is that the guy still tried to run but got tasered by the cop. So we have drunk driving, an idiot being run over by his own car, and then him getting tasered for trying to escape.
That’s one hell of a report.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
