News cameras from WSB-TV Atlanta caught a man asleep and visibly drooling in his truck that was parked on a highway near downtown Atlanta Saturday afternoon.

A Georgia Dept. of Transportation HERO Unit was dispatched to awaken the sleeping beauty before he sped away and caused a five-car collision.

After the wreck, the HERO officer managed to take the driver’s keys, but the drooler made a run for it, climbing a tree, then hopping a barbed-wire fence.

No one was seriously injured in the crash, and the driver has yet to be apprehended, according to WSB.
