A sleepy Audubon woman had a rude awakening early Saturday morning, when the vehicle she was driving crashed and rolled several times. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year old Alicia Renee King suffered only minor injuries during the crash, which happened at around 2:40-a.m., as she was traveling north on Highway 71, south of Hamlin.

When King fell asleep at the wheel of the 2003 Chevy van she was driving, the vehicle entered the east ditch and hit an embankment before rolling several times and coming to rest on its left side. The van was a total loss. Officials say King was cited for Failure to Maintain Control.
