A man suffered minor injuries after he apparently fell asleep at the wheel early Thursday morning, Feb. 10.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, at approximately 6:57 a.m., Roger A. Henry, 59, of Jennings was traveling eastbound on State Road 6. Henry fell asleep while driving and drove off the roadway, onto the south grass shoulder.
Henry traveled approximately one-tenth of a mile in his 2007 Buick before he came back abruptly onto the roadway, with the car out of control.
Henry crossed State Road 6 and struck a steel reflector post of the north side of the roadway.
The car continued out of control and overturned in a shallow mud and water area.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office assisted FHP with the traffic crash scene.
FHP Trooper Tom Roderick was the investigating officer.
