An Iowa City man faces a pair of charges after passing out in his truck while it was on fire.

Passers-by reported the truck fire about 8:15 Wednesday night at the Laundromania on Lower Muscatine Road. The caller said a person was passed out in the front seat and the vehicle was still running.

When fire crews arrived on scene, they found 23-year-old Dylan Hahn of Muscatine Avenue in the truck and extinguished the fire.

Police say Hahn admitted to having driven the truck to do his laundry. They say he showed several signs of intoxication and he admitted to drinking throughout the night. A PBT registered his BAC at .226.

Hahn already has an Operating While Intoxicated conviction from January 2016. He’s now charged with 2nd Offense OWI and Driving While Barred, charges carrying a combined four years in jail.
