A DRUNKEN van driver has been found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle in the middle of a busy main road near La Salut, Barcelona.

Two cyclists were stunned to notice three passengers in the van, which had its engine running, all passed out at a busy junction on a well-used road known as the C-1413a near Sabadell.

One of the cyclists filmed the scene while his friend warned passing cars about the unexpected obstacle.


The driver was slumped over the steering wheel, while the other two were equally out for the count, so the cyclists called the police.

The three men are believed to have come to a standstill in their work van after a night out, and the driver failed his breath test.

A spokesperson for the regional Mossos d’Esquadra police in Barcelona confirmed that the van driver had been arrested for being over the legal alcohol limit.
