WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police charged a man with DWI this week after they say they found him passed out in his car. But that wasn’t all that happened.
WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says officers were called to the 2200 block of S. College Rd. Monday evening to assist with a medical report of an unresponsive driver. Rawley says they found Aaron R. Taylor locked in the car with one foot on the accelerator and the other on the brake.
An officer broke a window to open the door. As emergency crews pulled Taylor out of the car, Rawley says the car moved forward and crashed into a police car. She says Taylor fell as it happened and was injured.
Police cited Taylor for DWI and released him at the hospital for medical treatment.
Court records show Taylor is due back in court in February to face charged of DWI and failure to comply with license restrictions.
