We have all been guilty of this, including myself. That is driving while sleepy. This morning police tell me a man crashed into a light post because he fell asleep behind the wheel. The wooded post came tumbling down and landed in the middle of the intersection of Big Bend and Sulphur Springs. Police shut down the street while Ameren UE crews worked a way removing the post bit by bit. Once crews finished removing the post Police reopened the road. I am told by investigators that the driver was not seriously injured in the crash.
I think this early morning accident should teach us all to be careful. If you find yourself sleepy behind the wheel pull over. The risk is too great to travel that extra mile with closing eyes.
