Crash Victim May Have Fallen Asleep at the Wheel

by Ramonica R. Jones

A Lufkin teenager that crashed a car early Saturday morning apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

David Barnett and two other Lufkin students were on the way back to Lufkin from the playoff game in Waco when the wreck happened.

Investigators said Barnett was headed east on Highway 7 when he drove off the road. He reportedly woke up and jerked the wheel, causing the car to skid off' the road and flip over several times.

Two of the teens were seriously hurt. The wreck happened in Leon County near Centerville.
