Sleeping While Driving in Elk Grove

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove Auto Accident Attorney. Over the past several days we have discussed auto accidents involving wrong-way drivers and auto accidents involving aging drivers and the perils they cause to our nation’s roadways. Today we bring you a story of a man who was sleeping while driving in Elk Grove.

Solo Crash Causes Residential Evacuations

Elk Grove Police Department say a solo car crash forced residences out of their houses in the middle of the night. The man that was sleeping while driving in Elk Grove explains that at about 1:15 a.m. he was proceeding down McClean Drive when he somehow fell asleep. He crashed into a gas meter, a Comcast cable box and someone’s house. The home is located at the corner of Blossom Ridge Drive and McClean Drive. PG&E said a pipe ruptured beneath the ground. This caused a gas leak requiring several homes to be evacuated. Crews dug up the pipe and fixed it. Residents were back in their homes by 7:00 a.m.

Sleeping While Driving or Intoxicated Driving?

No details have been released about the driver’s condition. At this point, we only know that the man was sleeping while driving in Elk Grove. Whether or not alcohol or drugs contributed to this crash is unknown.

Drowsy Driving

Drowsy driving may be every bit as dangerous as drunk driving. If you are feeling drowsy pull your car to a safe resting spot and take a little nap. If there is no rest stop available consider renting a motel for the night. Head out on the highways when you are well-rested. Drinking two cups of coffee before your road trip will give you a caffeine boost. Whatever you decide to do, let this story of sleeping while driving in Elk Grove be a wake up call to all the drowsy drivers out there. The last thing you want to have is a rude awakening to find out you’ve killed something by falling asleep at the wheel.
