'Reckless' Truck Driver in Catalonia Found to be 6 Times Over Alcohol Limit

Police shared video to Facebook on October 19 showing a dangerously intoxicated truck driver veering off a highway in Catalonia, Spain, before officers stopped him and found him well over the legal alcohol limit.

Footage shows the truck driving “recklessly” on the N-340 in Baix Ebre, a coastal community, police said. Other drivers had called police to report the dangerous driving.

Police said the driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of more than six times over the legal limit. The legal limit in Spain is 0.5 BAC, according to the European Transport Safety Council. Credit: Mossos d’Esquadra via Storyful
