Most every driver has experienced fatigue and drowsiness while behind the wheel. Often, even people who are relatively well-rested can feel their eyelids start to droop while driving. Despite the relatively common nature of drowsy drivers, one Missouri woman now faces accusations of DWI after she allegedly fell asleep while driving.
The incident that led to the woman’s arrest reportedly happened during the morning hours of a day in late September. According to reports, the 29-year-old woman was headed east on Highway 24 when police say she fell asleep. The Missouri State Highway Patrol states that afterward her vehicle exited the left side of the roadway.
