Had WSB reporter Liz Artz and her photographer not recorded what they witnessed on a busy Atlanta freeway many people probably wouldn’t believe that it really happened.
Artz saw a man slumped over the wheel of his truck and drooling while the truck was stopped and idling in the slow lane of a busy freeway, so she called 9-1-1 for help.
A Georgia HERO (Highway Emergency Response Operator) unit arrived and tried to help the man who was sleeping or passed out but the man woke up and drove off after a struggle with the HERO. With the Atlanta ABC affiliate’s camera rolling, the man then crashed his truck into several cars.
But he wasn’t done. The sleeping/passed out/delirious driver then jumped out of his truck, climbed a tree and hopped a fence. Police still haven’t found him. You can watch the raw video after the jump.[The Blaze]
