The man was found passed out behind the wheel at the lights.Video has captured the moment a Perth driver and his passenger were both found passed out on Leach Highway at a set of lights – which had turned green.

The bizarre incident about 9pm on Friday night was witnessed by motorist Aaron Gliddon, who told 7 News Perth that he and other were shocked by what they discovered.

Behind the wheel a 39-year-old man was out of it. And next to him, a woman in her 40s was in the same state.

“Everyone behind us was beeping like crazy. As soon as it went red one of the guys behind us got and said ‘they’re passed out, ring the cops’,” he said.

“When the traffic lights turned green and this ute didn’t move, the car behind it knew something wasn’t right.”

Police weren’t able to do a drug and alcohol test because they couldn’t wake the man.
