Deputies: Teen falls asleep at wheel, rolls vehicle

Posted: Updated:

A teenage driver fell asleep at the wheel and rolled her vehicle.

It happened about 6:55 a.m. on July 7.

Sanilac County Deputies were called to Sanilac Road near Decker Road in Lamotte Township. That’s where they said a 17-year-old fell asleep while driving a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Deputies said after falling asleep, her car left the road, went into the ditch, and eventually hit a field drive embankment where the car went airborne and overturned.

She was taken to Marlette Hospital, but her condition is unclear.

Deputies said it appears seatbelts were not used.
