“The California Highway Patrol said an officer broke a window to wake an allegedly drunk woman found sleeping in a car stopped in the middle of a busy interstate. Witness Paul Anderegg spotted the car stopped in the middle of Interstate 805 northbound in San Diego early Friday and he pulled over to the side of the road. Anderegg said he walked across traffic to reach the car, which he said other motorists were passing on either side without stopping, but he was unable to wake the woman by knocking on her window. ‘You can see cars are going by 65, 70, even 80 miles an hour. Any impact… and that was very close,”‘CHP Officer Jake Sanchez told CNN Wire.
Anderegg called 911 and CHP Officer Sergio Flores soon arrived on the scene and attempted to rouse the motorist.
The highway patrol said Flores used his flashlight to knock out the passenger side window when the woman removed her foot from the brake and the car started to roll. The woman, identified as Amber Dlaine McKinney Morgan, 25, woke up and shifted the car into park. Morgan was removed from the car and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Police said a large bottle of alcohol and other drinks were seized from Morgan’s car.” (UPI)
