Elderly Man Falls Asleep Behind the Wheel & Drives Up a Maine Telephone Pole
According to WGME 13, a Maine man fell asleep behind the wheel in Waterboro, Maine, on Wednesday.
The news station reported that a 70-year-old driver dozed off behind the wheel and subsequently crashed at the intersection of Routes 5 and 202.
After falling asleep, the car careened off the roadway and up the support cables of a nearby telephone pole.
Officials say that had the wires not been there, the crash could have been significantly worse due to the fact the car would have hit head-on into the telephone pole.
Fortunately, WGME reports that there were no injuries reported following the crash.
