Drowsy Driver Narrowly Avoids Disaster With Tree
A Kennewick driver could have been in far worse shape after reportedly falling asleep behind the wheel of his car Sunday morning.
Police responded to this home near West Metaline and North Volland streets, after this Ford went through a fence, clipped a tree, and just missed possibly hurting the driver badly.
Police say the man was luck he didn't strike it head-on. They remind drivers regardless of the situation or your schedule, don't get behind the wheel if you're exhausted. Tired driving produces the same reaction time effects as alcohol, but even worse, you can fall asleep while moving. The man was not hurt.
