Every day, motorists get behind the wheel without enough rest and cause serious car accidents. In fact, the National Sleep Foundation estimates approximately 168 million drowsy drivers are on the road each year.
The dangers of drowsy driving were highlighted when investigators determined an Indiana drowsy driving accident was responsible for leaving one person seriously injured earlier this week. Reports indicate the crash happened near the intersection of SR46 and Dearborn Street in Vigo County.
According to an article from WTHITV 10 News, the victim fell asleep while traveling east along 46 and veered off the road. The car then struck an embankment and flipped, leaving the driver requiring immediate medical attention.
