Edgar Brown Stadium in Pasco is often referred to as The Gravel Pit, because it's origins were literally that--a pit used to dig gravel for constructions projects prior to it's opening in 1957.

A driver who fell asleep behind the wheel early Friday morning is lucky their car didn't keep going through the fence and tumble down the steep hillside into The Gravel Pit.

Pasco police say the drowsy driver was NOT intoxicated, they just drifted off behind the wheel, then drifted into and part way through the fence. They didn't sustain any serious injuries.

Police urge people even if they're a bit tired, not to get behind the wheel.
