Man Falls Asleep At The Wheel

A man fell asleep at the wheel and drove his vehicle off the road in Smith County Wednesday morning.

It happened on FM-15 this morning, about 6 miles east of Troup. Police said 19-year-old Jacob Paul Hill of Marshall hit several trees before his truck stopped. Investigators say there weren't any skid marks, so they don't believe he tried to stop. DPS Troopers said he was not wearing a seat belt.
