A driver who had gone missing on the road in New Mexico after a one-car accident says he woke up the following morning in a field of donkeys and wasn't so clear on how he got there.

After the accident, police were having trouble finding victims until the driver called 911 several hours later asserting that he'd woken up near a bunch of animals, most notably donkeys. He claimed that he and a passenger had been drinking but that was the last thing he remembered, and then here he was, among nature's friends.

The driver suffered some injuries and was issued several citations, but police officials haven't revealed for what.
