Sunshine Coast RCMP are saying falling asleep at the wheel probably caused an accident in Gibsons.

It happened on North Road, around 3:20 Sunday afternoon.

RCMP say a car veered off the road, hitting a street sign so hard it went flying and ended up impaling a tree.  Then the car itself hit a tree and was forced back onto the road.

Luckily the driver, a 50 year old man from Thailand, escaped with only minor injuries to his shoulder and leg.

Police say he won’t be facing any charges.
