The Sheriff’s Office says deputies and rescue personnel removed the person from the water and checked to make sure the victim did not need further medical attention. During that time, an off-duty paramedic with Pamlico Rescue moved an ambulance from one side of the building to the other.

While moving the ambulance, a vehicle parked in the parking lot was struck by the ambulance. When law enforcement arrived at the area of the collision, it was determined the driver, 37-year-old Eric Kindle was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Law Enforcement contacted the North Carolina Highway Patrol for further investigations. As a result, Kindle was charged with Driving While Impaired.

Highway Patrol tells WNCT that Kindle blew a .11 on the scene. The legal limit in North Carolina is .08.
