hmmm...2 or 3 am. Bars close 2 or 3 am. Young drivers dont just fall asleep at the wheel on local roads. What do ya think Tim? By the looks of the damage, he was going quite a bit faster than the speed limit. He's lucky allright. That he didnt kill anyone, including himself.

No skid marks where he hit the 1st pole.

Before he hit the 2nd pole, brakes appeared to be applied.

It sure seems like he had to be flying...

I am just going by what the Power Co. Supervisor told me. The kid had not been drinking...

If he had been DWI, I'm sure it will make the papers....

I just watched an episode of 5th gear about this. Apparently many more deaths occur from falling asleep at the wheel vs DWI. Drivers who are DWI have slowed reactions vs sleeping drivers have no reactions.

troutly, good work. I was just quoting what I saw on TV. If the episode re-runs TIVO will record it. It is a British show so maybe there is some difference associated with that. I am not an expert and am just repeating what I saw. They did set up a driving course and had half the journalist drive drunk and the other half drive deprived of sleep. I do not remember the results though, I am usually falling asleep when watching TV.

Not that I in ANY way approve of drinking and driving, but....

I read once that drunk people (as defined about 10 years ago) have lower response times and (here's the new part) as a rule do not end up with the injuries a sober person does because they are more relaxed. It went on to explain that many injuries are sustained when people brace themselves. Of course I never put a WHOLE lot of credence to it because in a head on wouldn't the majority of the injuries be in the lower extremeties??? Has anyone else heard or read about that. I'd love to think we could "shoot some holes" in it so to speak.

Whatever the circumstances were - he is a very luck young man.
