Another high speed snoozer. The police believe that driver was tired and fell asleep at the wheel. I 'believe' the driver was under influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Otherwise you not just drive into the back of a delivery truck. Anyway he was not fit to drive in a responsible way.  ( sorry for the use of the word 'responsible' in LOS)

How many people sleep when driving, seems to be a high number, on a small island. LOS, Land Of Snoozers .
