PLAINVILLE, CT. — Police were met with a bizarre scene when they were called to a car crash in Plainville.

The accident happened early Tuesday morning, WFSB reported.

According to authorities, they pulled the driver over who they said was clearly was drunk or on drugs.

The officer told the driver to put the car in park, but refused and decided to drive away.

That’s when he lost control, rammed through a fence and crashed into a building.

Even though he was several feet off the ground, the driver jumped out of the car and ran for the woods.

He was later found at a local hospital.
