Officials with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office say a Jefferson County teen was involved in a single car accident.  19 year-old Chadwick Giberson of Packwood was driving in the 1400 block of U.S. Highway 34 around 2:00 yesterday morning when he fell asleep at the wheel and drifted onto the median shoulder.

Upon leaving the road, he awoke and over corrected his Ford Ranger causing the pickup to begin rolling, and settling in the north lane for westbound traffic.

Police say Giberson wasn’t injured in the accident, but the truck was a total loss.  Giberson was cited for failure to maintain control.
