GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Graves County Sheriff said seatbelts likely prevented serious injuries in a Thanksgiving Day crash after the driver fell asleep at the wheel.
According to the sheriff's office, 19-year-old Austin Seay of Hickory, Ky. was driving south on the Jackson Purchase Parkway when he fell asleep and his vehicle went into the median.
Deputies said Seay over-corrected, rolled over both lanes and the vehicle went through the guardrail.
The vehicle came to rest facing north on its right side.
A 17-year-old passenger had to go to the hospital for treatment. Seay wasn't hurt.
