Comments Off

A driver is in serious condition following a trucking accident when he allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed with a gravel truck.

A 2006 Dodge Infinity driven by a 39-year-old man, of Plano, was heading eastbound on Highway 64 when his car veered into oncoming traffic and struck a dump truck heading westbound, according to a report by Texas Department of Transportation.

The truck driver tried to move to the right to avoid the car but both vehicles collided. The truck driver suffered minor injuries in the accident.

Rescue workers used the Jaws of Life to extract the driver of the Infinity. He was then transported to East Texas Medical Center,

The accident is currently under investigation and officials say citations will be issued against the driver of the Infinity for falling asleep behind the wheel.
