GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a suspected drunk driver crashed into a medical helicopter and fire truck overnight in McKinley County.

Sheriff’s deputies say the incident happened early Sunday on Highway 566 near Gallup.

According to investigators, a medical transport helicopter was in a landing zone when the suspect went around a barricade and hit it and the fire truck.

Deputies say the helicopter was supposed to transport a patient from a rollover crash but it was unoccupied and not in operation at the time.

Twenty-six-year-old Glenn Livingston, of Gallup, has been booked on charges of aggravated DWI, resisting arrest and other offenses.

All the vehicles involved, including the helicopter, had to be towed from the site.
