DPS: Diboll man falls asleep at wheel, goes off road, hits fence

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Diboll man is lucky to be alive after he fell asleep at the wheel, crossed all four lanes of US Highway 69, and hit a fence. No one was injured in the accident.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Joshua Senn said that the accident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. Thursday just north of Lufkin on US 69. Senn said Abrham Villalobos, 41, was driving south on US 69 in a Chevrolet pickup.

Senn said that Abrham told them that he fell asleep at the wheel. The truck crossed all four lanes of traffic and barely missed two cars before it hit the fence.

No one was injured in the one-vehicle accident.
