Asleep trucker wrecks across I-20

A truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel overturned across both lanes of the Interstate 20 Wednesday morning, backing up traffic for miles.
At 9:04 a.m. Andre C. Carter, 24, of Stone Mountain, went to sleep between Exit 169 and Exit 170 eastbound and drove his tractor-trailer trailer off the road. When he woke, he was in the median and he overcorrected as he attempted to return to the highway.
The load of raw, frozen meat shifted in trailer owned by Knight Refrigerated Trucking of Indiana and the momentum caused the rollover. The trailer overturned across both lanes and the tractor’s cab landed in the ditch.
Carter who injured his left arm was transported to University Hospital McDuffie for medical treatment.
