“Following this, the driver rammed into a Honda Civic before it hit a road divider and spun around. The suspect’s vehicle then came to a stop in the middle of the highway, and a Proton Persona rammed into it.”

A team of firemen rushed to the scene when they received a distress call.
Firemen and paramedics, who responded to the case, smelled a strong alcoholic stench from the man’s breath when they rescued him.
The incident caused serious damage to the vehicles involved.
