(WWJ) Police are calling this a reminder not to get behind the wheel if you're too tired.

"It’s the same as driving drunk or drugged," the Michigan State Police First District said, sharing startling photos of a recent crash in Ingham County.

Police said MSP troopers with the Lansing post responded to the accident scene, on M-52/Colby Rd. in Locke Township, east of Lansing. 

According to investigators, the driver fell asleep, went off the roadway and took out two trees. While both the car and the trees were destroyed, the driver survived.
