GLADES COUNTY, Fla. — A 22-year-old Florida man is in serious condition after fell asleep at the wheel and his van collided with a semi-truck.

On Jan. 27, at around 4:45 p.m., the van was traveling southeast on CR-74 just west of State Road 29, in Glades County. The driver fell asleep and sideswiped the oncoming truck which sent the van flipping several times until it came to rest on the grass shoulder.

The driver of the truck was not injured.
