Prosecutors are pushing ahead with a drunken driving case against a former San Francisco firefighter despite a judge's decision to toss out key blood-alcohol evidence.
San Francisco District Attorney's office spokesman Alex Bastian tells the San Francisco Chronicle prosecutors still have enough evidence to proceed to trial against Michael Quinn.
Quinn struck a motorcyclist with his rig in 2013 and was later seen on video chugging water at a bar. The motorcyclist was badly injured.
A judge in March said there wasn't enough evidence for police to arrest Quinn before administering a blood alcohol test because they could not conclude whether he had been drinking before the accident or after it.

Quinn's attorney, James Bustamante, said the case is politically motivated.
