Driver May Have Fallen Asleep in Single-Vehicle Wreck

Port Wentworth police are looking into an accident which happened today on I-95 near the Georgia Welcome Center. Police say the driver of a red Thunderbird heading south fell asleep at the wheel. He lost control, slammed into the guard rail, went airborne and flew across the northbound lanes and landed on the other set of guard rails.

Rescue crews cut him out with the Jaws of Life and rushed him to the hospital in serious condition.

No word on any charges yet.
