The driver, Everett W. Fulk, 37, told authorities Tuesday morning that he had apparently fallen asleep and drove his red Ford pickup off the road.
A Brazil man was taken to St. Vincent Clay Hospital after his pickup truck left the road and struck a tree Tuesday morning.

According to a press release by Dep. Eric Walker of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, shortly after 10:30 a.m., sheriff's deputies along with members of the Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department and TransCare Ambulance were dispatched to a single-vehicle accident in an area near the intersection of United States 40 and Private Road 285 West.

The driver, Everett W. Fulk, 37, told authorities he had apparently fallen asleep and drove his red Ford pickup off the road.

Bleeding from the forehead and complaining of pain in his chest, Fulk was transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Glad he is alive. Better load up on caffeine on the

next morning.

Not the first time he's hit a tree.

July 21, 2005.

Driving tired is almost or just as equally bad as driving while intoxicated in my opinion. I'm glad he's still alive as well and only what seem to be minor injuries. He's very lucky it wasn't worse.
