According to a police report reviewed by, “A caller stated that a maroon Honda Ridgeline was driving all over the roadway and was unable to maintain a single lane. The caller also said that the vehicle struck a bicycle sign on the east side of North Ocean Blvd. After striking the sign, the vehicle continued northbound away from the crash. The caller believed that the driver was possibly impaired or suffering from a medical condition.”

Another driver — in front of the Honda — slowed down and blocked the car from moving forward. The driver apparently exited his vehicle and fell to the ground. That’s when police caught up and took control of the scene.

A responding officer, Timothy Shannahan, wrote, “(I saw the driver) on his hands and knees outside of his vehicle and had blood on his face.”

The driver was identified as Brian Bachmann. He is now charged with “hit and run — leave scene of a crash involving damage to property,” “DUI — unlawful blood alcohol, refuse to submit to DUI test after license suspension,” and “DUI — unlawful blood alcohol, DUI damage to property or person of another.”

Bachmann was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on his own recognizance. Records shows that he lives in the 1600 block of NE 47th Avenue in Pompano Beach.
