BRONSON TOWNSHIP, MI- Wtvbam.com writes that a driver from Indiana sustained injuries in a single-vehicle accident that took place in Michigan over the weekend. The driver, a 22-year-old man, was traveling southbound on Orland Road when police say he fell asleep behind the wheel very early in the morning.*
A man living near the site of the accident called the police after hearing the sound of the crash. The police arrived to find the SUV in a field on the east side of the roadway near the Prairie River. The driver appeared to have hit a guardrail, causing his Escalade to go airborne, travel over the river, and land upright on the opposite side.
The driver did not reportedly have a seatbelt on, but the airbags in the vehicle deployed. The man was rushed to the ProMedica Coldwater Regional Hospital, where he is being treated for injuries to his hand and head. The police issued the driver a ticket for careless driving.
