Framingham, Massachusetts at 6:30pm in winter so it was dark. I was going from work to night school for class. I was travelling on a 35 mph street in traffic so I wasn't speeding. I was less than 2 miles from school where I had planned to take a nap before class. I was extremely tired and had been drifting off to sleep the entire way.
Obviously one too many times I fell asleep. I woke to hitting the curb off to the right of the road. As I hopped up on the curb I saw the telephone pole right in front of me. I had no time to react when I tagged the pole. Dead Center.
The impact cracked the pole in half and it came collapsing on top of my car. It tore all the lines off the surrounding houses and left live wires in the street. Power was knocked out to the road. I was wearing my seatbelt and the airbag deployed. I got out of my car and went into one of the neighbors houses to try and find a ride home. No injuries what-so-ever. Just a little spooked.
My advice. If you get tired...stop driving.
