Happy Friday.

Driver finishes beer after ramming Queens man, 62

Some people just don't know when to say when. After slamming his van into a 62-year-old man early yesterday, Antonio Rosas greeted cops by finishing his can of Coors Light, authorities said.

Rosas, 33, had a .272 blood alcohol level - more than three times the legal limit - when he hit Edgardo Pizarro at 1 a.m. on Roosevelt Ave. in Corona, Queens, sending him flying over his Chevrolet van. "The nerve of this guy, I would have just smacked that beer out of his hand," said Pizzaro's daughter, Audra Cabarcas.

Pizzaro, a Manhattan doorman who retired 10 years ago to care for his elderly mother, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center with a fractured back, pelvis, forearm and severe head injuries. "My dad said he didn't see him coming...He just crossed the street and all he remembers is a boom and he was on the floor," said Cabarcas. "How could he [Rosas] even do that? Unbelievable."

Cops saw Rosas weaving over a double yellow line just before he hit Pizzaro. Rosas was pulled over minutes later, law enforcement sources said.

After downing his beer, he was asked for a driver's license but didn't have one, prosecutors said. He also stunk of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, and was unsteady on his feet.

Rosas, a construction worker, is facing up to 25 years if convicted of drunken driving and numerous other charges.
