Queens Drunk Driver Tries To Drive Burning Car (Video)

Footage of a drunk driver unsuccessfully trying to put out a car fire only to then climb back behind the wheel will be included in a new show on truTV, according to The Village Voice.

Roommates Rob Boudon and Jill Hanner were at home in Astoria when a drunk driver drove his SUV into the area behind their apartment and began "ramming it into piles of wood and metal."

From the Voice:

The two rolled footage on the inferno one late night in April. According to Hanner, a loud bang brought the two running to a window. "I was so freaked out," recalls Hanner, "I thought someone was dead."

The video has to be seen to be believed.
