Witnesses had previously observed how the 49-year-old drove several kilometers of wavy lines. According to initial findings, the man had left the road at the Koblenz / Dieblich (Rhineland-Palatinate) exit and got into a meadow, the police said.

The driver then shifted into reverse and hit the guardrail where the tractor-trailer got stuck in the soft ground.

A breath alcohol test showed: more than 3.2 per thousand!

After a blood sample was taken, he was released from the hospital. The truck was towed away and the traffic at the exit was hampered until the evening hours because of the clean-up work.
