An FDNY firefighter in full dress uniform was busted for drunken driving in Brooklyn Friday after his car struck a pedestrian.

Matthew Wilson, 36, was on his way from fallen firefighter Steven Pollard’s funeral in Sheepshead Bay when he hit the pedestrian on a sidewalk at Marine Parkway and Quentin Road, cops said.

Wilson was driving a 2017 Ford Explorer registered to the Uniformed Firefighter Association, the union that represents New York City firefighters.

Cops smelled alcohol on Wilson, and he refused to take a breath test, officials said.

Wilson was charged with driving while impaired and refusing to take a breath test.

Both Wilson and the pedestrian were treated at King’s County Hospital for non-serious injuries.
