OTTAWA -- A volunteer firefighter was woozy and boozy when he arrived at his fire hall a short time after a cyclist was found badly injured on a rural road, a court heard Tuesday.

Jennifer Leonard still can't remember how she came to be lying witless on a road on the afternoon of Oct. 9, 2012.

But the Crown says it was Trevor Clarke who struck the 45-year-old woman with his Ford F-150 while driving drunk, and who then fled the scene.

Clarke, 36, pleaded not guilty to impaired driving, driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit and failing to stop at the scene of an accident, all causing bodily harm.
