COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A Naples taxi driver is under arrest for driving under the influence.
Collier County Sheriff's deputies say the Crown Taxi driver blew almost three times over the legal limit after he crashed his company car.
CCSO says Antonio Lee blew a .212, after he lost control of his Crown Taxi on Immokalee Road near the intersection with Wilson Blvd on Sunday evening.
The van sped across on-coming traffic, hit the guardrail, and finally rested in the center median of the busy road.
Deputies say Lee was driving on four completely bald tires. All four blew out, but investigators say he kept barreling down the road, heading eastbound in the westbound lanes for about a quarter of a mile.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they say the taxi driver was visibly intoxicated. The arrest report says "Lee was having difficulty standing up and swayed from front to back very noticeably."
It goes on to say "his speech was slurred and he was spitting as he spoke."
Lee wasn't seriously hurt in the crash and luckily, no clients were inside the taxi at the time. A man who witnessed the dramatic crash but wishes to remain anonymous, talked to WINK about the dramatic accident.
"We parked on the sidewalk. My son ran over to see if he was OK, because we didn't know if he had a heart attack or something. We didn't know what was going on," the witness said.
It's still unclear whether Lee was actually on-duty for Crown Taxi at the time of the accident. Calls to the company's Naples headquarters were not immediately returned.
