Truck Driver Asleep At The Wheel Sends Tanker Into The Ditch

Wythe, Virginia – 51-year-old truck driver Guy Brown from Pennsylvania was cited yesterday morning for failure to maintain control after the tanker truck he was driving crashed along I-81. Virginia State Police Trooper J. Combs said Brown “dozed off” then crossed the median into the northbound lane, before crashing in the ditch by the roadway.

Brown refused medical attention on the scene. The tanker was hauling milk and remained upright and was not punctured. The tractor did overturn and sustained significant damage.
