VIDEO: The moment you have a micro-sleep behind the wheel

NO. No no no no no!

A sedan driver heading along a road in Tourkley south of Newcastle has been caught smacking into the back of a ute after apparently falling asleep at the wheel.

The driver had no trouble slowing down for the speed bump only 10 seconds earlier, but is then seen drifting to the left at speed.

A ute parked at the bottom of a driveway becomes what must have been a rude awakening for the driver.

The crash was posted online to the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page.
