The host of "Jeopardy!" has managed to escape injury after crashing his pickup truck in California.
Authorities say Alex Trebek apparently fell asleep at the wheel. The vehicle sideswiped a string of mailboxes, sailed over an embankment, and was airborne for about 40 feet before it landed in a ditch.
A California Highway Patrol officer says Trebek, who's 63, was driving alone on a rural road in the central part of the state last night. Trebek owns a horse farm about ten miles southeast of Templeton.
He's been the host of "Jeopardy!" since 1984. He also hosts the National Geographic Bee.
