ROSWELL, N.M., Sept. 17 (UPI) -- An intoxicated man who rolled his car on a highway near Roswell woke up hours later and called police to tell them he was lost in a field of donkeys.

Police received a call at 2:00 a.m. Friday to respond to a one-car rollover, but when they arrived on the scene no one was present. Dispatchers received a call seven hours later from the driver who said he was lost after he got into a car accident that morning. He said he woke up next to some donkeys in a field.

The man said he and his passenger had been drinking the night before and did not remember what happened. Both of the car's occupants sustained several non-fatal injuries.

The driver received multiple citations, but police have not disclosed the specific charges.
