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 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.
