Drunk, Asleep and Driving a Car? The Curious Case of Dr. Donald Clegg


Donald Clegg, a 59-year old doctor from Prestwich in the UK was four times over the legal limit when he crashed his Vauxhall Zafira into a row of parked cars. He was also sleepwalking at the time and attired in a dressing gown and slippers…
