Wife Runs Over Husband Sleeping In Driveway

Man Says He'd Been Drinking Alcohol

POSTED: 8:44 am EDT August 24, 2006

ROGERS, Ark. -- An Arkansas man who fell asleep in his driveway woke up when his wife came home and turned into the driveway to park the car and ran over him.

Kristine Bolson told the Benton County Sheriff's Office that she drove into her driveway shortly after midnight Tuesday and heard a loud cracking sound. She said that when she got out of her vehicle, she heard moaning and found her husband, Richard Gonzalez, on the ground near her vehicle. Bolson said she did not initially see her husband in the driveway.

A sheriff's reports said Gonzales told them he had been drinking and he must have passed out. He was treated at a hospital for scratches and bruises.

I don't know why, but I'm thinking that alcohol may well have played a role here.

Train tracks are much more comfortable.

You can use a rail as a pillow.

When you've had a few and there's an evening chill and every time you walk toward the front door it moves to another corner of the yard, it's often tempting to lower yourself onto the ground. If it's warm, black bitumen there radiating all that heat it soaked up during the day, putting your head down for a little rest is the most natural thing in the world.

Not that I speak from personal experience, mind you.

When in that particular state, nothing beats the comfort of your bathroom floor and the toilet seat as a pillow. Ahhh the memories....

I quess saying that he was "passed out" on the driveway, would not be proper since it would have you believe the quy was drunk.

Hmmm...assuming it's dark after midnight in Arkansas, she must've pulled into the driveway with her headlights off?

Hope these two don't have children. Or pets.
