Police: Driver Dozes Off, Crashes Into Sign


Police say a driver who dozed off behind the wheel is lucky to have walked away from an accident on South Academy Boulevard Friday morning.

The driver had reportedly just gotten off work and was on his way home when he dozed off for a moment. His car, heading northbound on Academy, crossed into the southbound lanes of traffic and struck a brick sign.

The driver was not injured in the wreck, but damage to his Pontiac Sunfire and to the sign was significant.

Police say the man was issued a ticket for careless driving.
