Man Severs Foot In Livermore Crash, Arrested For DUI
LIVERMORE (CBS / AP) — A man lost his foot after police say he stuck his leg out the door of his moving BMW, and then was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
31-year-old John Buna severed his foot at the ankle Wednesday after hitting it on a cinder block during a reckless drive in a Livermore parking lot.
A woman with Buna said she exited his two-door BMW because she was frightened of his driving, police said.
Buna stuck his foot out of the driver’s side door as if he was exiting the car, but instead accelerated suddenly, crushing the foot between the car and block.
Police said Buna parked his car and the woman called for help.
Police are still waiting for Buna’s blood alcohol results.
