When police arrived on the scene, the driver, Aaron R. Taylor, was locked in a vehicle with one foot on the accelerator and the other foot on the brake pedal.

Police say the officer broke the window and extracted Taylor from the vehicle.

The vehicle moved forward 13 feet and hit a police car while officers were removing Taylor. When the vehicle lunged forward, Taylor actually fell as they were trying to get him out.

Taylor was charged with DWI.

He was cited and released at the hospital.
