Ex-SF firefighter surrenders in rig crash

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A former San Francisco firefighter has surrendered to face felony drunken-driving charges stemming from an incident in which he allegedly drove a ladder truck into a motorcyclist and left the scene.

The San Francisco Chronicle says (http://bit.ly/1dK1OYb ) says Michael Quinn turned himself in Monday. The 43-year-old was indicted on three felonies in connection with the crash last June.

Quinn was driving with siren blaring, responding to what turned out to be a false alarm, when he struck the motorcyclist. Quinn reportedly was spotted at a bar guzzling water immediately after the crash.

His blood-alcohol level was measured at .13 percent.

The motorcyclist suffered broken bones and a punctured lung.

Alex Bastian, spokesman for the district attorney's office, says Quinn faces a maximum of three years in prison.

Quinn's attorney, James Bustamante, declined to comment.
