PHOENIX (AP) - Police say a Phoenix taxi driver was drunk when he crashed his vehicle into the rear-bumper of an ambulance.

According to multiple reports, the taxi and ambulance pulled into a nearby parking lot after the Thursday crash before the Joel Honeycutt fled on foot, leaving an injured passenger at the scene.

Police caught the driver a short time later and administered a breathalyzer test. Honeycutt’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.21, which police say qualifies as a super extreme DUI.

Police also found the driver in possession of drugs.

Police say the taxi’s passenger was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The two emergency workers were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Officials say there was no patient in the ambulance.
