Man who crashed his SUV while drinking, having sex faces charges
Police say 25-year-old fled the accident scene, leaving his injured lover lying naked at the roadside
A New Mexico man is facing multiple charges after allegedly doing just about everything bad that a person can do, all at the same time. While driving.
The 25-year-old was drunk and having sex with a woman when he ran a red light and crashed his Ford Explorer, ejecting the woman from the vehicle, police say.
But there’s more.
When presented with the opportunity to do something right and help the woman, he instead chose to flee the scene, leaving her lying naked and injured at the roadside, the Albuquerque Journal reports.
Police say the man first tried to drive away without her but a witness grabbed his keys from the ignition, at which point he took off on foot.
Police later found him hiding behind a cactus, wearing his shorts inside-out and with only one shoe on. They also say a half-full bottle of vodka was found in his truck.
Luis Briones has been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and evading police.
