Sleeping Driver Slams into Dump Truck
If you're feeling down in the dumps, be glad you're not this unfortunate soul. 29-year-old Grant Zahl fell asleep while driving on Highway 12 in Walla Walla. He was traveling eastbound when he hit a dump truck driven by a Kennewick driver.
The dump truck didn't suffer any significant damage, but Zahl and his pick-up were left in pretty bad shape. The pick-up was totaled, and its driver was taken to a nearby hospital. He'll be okay, but that ticket for negligent driving will leave a lingering sting. Drowsy driving is no joke!
