I received this email from a prior client of mine who received it from her brother in Alaska. Driving while drowsy is very dangerous. If you are tired, pull over and rest. It is better to be late than not make it there at all because of a deadly car accident.
This accident occurred north of Deer Lodge on I-90. The driver was an approximately 22 year old guy heading east to College. He had left central Washington early in the morning. He fell asleep at the wheel and drifted off the shoulder hitting the end of the section of guard rail.
The guard rail came through the right headlight, engine compartment, firewall, glove box, passenger seat, rear seat and exited out the driver s side rear window. That is 120 LF of guard rail that threaded through the suburban.
I am sharing this as a reminder to all about NOT driving when you shouldn’t be behind the wheel (drinking, texting, distracted or just plain tired).
