Did sleep deprivation cause crash?

Driving a car requires an alert driver.

If you feel yourself getting sleepy, it might be best to get off the road to prevent an accident.

That very scenario might possibly have happened recently. A major accident on Interstate 5 sent three people to Enloe Medical Center after a Ford Focus and a large freightliner collided in the early morning.

Officials ruled out the freightliner’s driver being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but said the timing suggested sleep deprivation may have been the cause.

Let this be a lesson to be careful about driving late at night.
