Law Enforcement: Driver Involved in Central Freeway Crash Asleep at the Wheel

Law enforcement now says a driver whose car rolled over on Central Freeway fell asleep at the wheel.

The crash sent two people to the hospital Thursday night.

When the driver fell asleep, the car began to drift right. The driver woke up and over corrected. The front of the car hit a light pole in the median, then struck a guardrail and went airborne. The car came to a rest on its top in northbound lanes of I-44.

DPS says two people were taken to United Regional with non life threatening injuries.
