A Lansdale man is accused of falling asleep at the wheel while driving drunk and running into a police car. It happened shortly after 3:30pm Monday at West Main Street and Valley Forge Road. Police say a Ford Taurus was stopped at the traffic light on South Valley Forge Road facing north with a long line of cars behind it. They saw a man in the driver’s seat with his eyes closed and his foot on the brake. When they woke him up he lifted his foot from the brake and the car traveled forward, striking the back of a police car, which had been parked there as a precaution. The driver, 66-year-old Roy Adams of Derstine Avenue, was charged with DUI, reckless driving and other offenses. His blood alcohol level was about three times the legal limit for driving.
