Driver in the country illegally was too drunk to know he wrecked

Authorities in Georgia say an alleged drunk driver who led deputies on a chase before crashing was so drunk that he didn't know he wrecked his vehicle.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office on Friday released dashcam footage from a chase involving Felipe Berduo-Morales, 37.

Officials say the police pursuit began when deputies noticed Berduo-Morales' driving was putting other motorists in danger. After the 5-minute chase, Berduo-Morales' car drove off the road.

"He appeared so intoxicated he was unaware that he'd just been in a car accident," the department posted on Facebook.

Berduo-Morales was charged with suspicious of DUI, reckless driving and other traffic-related charges, officials say.

During their investigation, authorities learned he is in the country illegally. Once he is eligible for release, he will go into ICE custody.
