Driving While Fatigued

When not to be on guard



This accident happened north of Deer Lodge, Montana on I-90.
The 22 year-old driver left central Washington early in the morning,
heading east to college. He fell asleep at the wheel, and drifted off the
shoulder - hitting the end of the section of guard rail.

Driving through a guard rail while fatigued

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's 120 linear feet of guard rail that threaded through the suburban.


No passengers, and amazingly - the driver was not injured.
