A woman fell asleep while driving and hit another vehicle head-on this morning. 

It just was before 4:30 a.m. when officers say a woman driving a white car drifted into oncoming traffic after falling asleep at the wheel. She struck a red truck head-on. 

Two people in the truck were taken to the hospital with complaints of back pain. The driver of the white car was not injured. She will be ticketed.

Weber Road was shut down at Holly Road in order for crews to clean up the wreckage. The intersection opened up about an hour later.
