A 54 year old Morton Grove, Illinois, man is in serious condition at last check after falling asleep at the wheel Sunday afternoon while heading north on I-65, one-mile south of the Lowell exit. Indiana State Police Lowell Post reports Chester Tanaka fell asleep while in the right lane, and his vehicle drifted off the roadway, and he awoke when it was off in the gravel off the outer shoulder. State Police say he over-corrected while attempting to regain control of the vehicle, but the vehicle ultimately went off the road to the right and rolled over twice before coming to rest in a corn field fifty feet east of I-65. The Morton Grove man had to be extricated from the vehicle and he was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. His wife and 14 year old son were also taken to the hospital where they were treated and released. Authorities say the vehicle was a total loss and all three were wearing their seat belts.
