Police Say Drunk Driver Passes Out, Rams Fire Truck

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police said a driver was so drunk that he passed out behind the wheel and ran into a fire truck.

A court affidavit said Phillip Pomeroy had been drinking five days straight when he got behind the wheel and rammed a fire engine.

When officers showed up, they said Pomeroy tried to take off and nearly hit an ambulance.

Police finally pulled him out of the car, and found three bottles of vodka in the backseat.

It's not clear how badly the fire truck was damaged.

Pomeroy faces multiple charges.
