Posted: Updated:
SANILAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A man was injured after he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his vehicle over the weekend.

The accident happened on Ubly Road south of Cumber Road in the Township of Austin in Sanilac County on Saturday.

A 37-year-old Decker man was driving southbound on Ubly Road when he fell asleep, police said. His vehicle went off the roadway, entered a ditch and struck two embankments.

The driver was not wearing a seatbelt, which caused him to hit his head on the upper windshield and roof, police said.

He was transported to Huron Medical Center for treatments.

Police do not believe alcohol was a factor.
