Drunk driving is a horrible thing to do. Drunk driving a car that is up in flames is monumentally moronic.
Meet 32-year-old Alan Edward Blake, who wasn't technically drunk driving, but was extremely intoxicated and behind the wheel of his smoldering Pontiac Bonneville at 4 a.m. in Michigan. Residents saw the car fire and notified the police that someone had been revving the engine for over an hour. When Officer Eric Hornbacher arrived, he found the car on fire and oddly, the driver, Blake, was still nestled in the burning vehicle.
"Are you that drunk," the officer asked, "that you did not realize that your car was on fire and you were sitting in a burning car?"
The officer pulled the heavily intoxicated man out, and within minutes the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames. Authorities believe that the driver had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator, causing the engine to race and ignite. The car eventually burst into flames, but firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze. With Blake being that drunk to not notice that his car was on fire, he's lucky he didn't instantly incinerate with all that flammable alcohol in his system.
