TAYLORSVILLE -- A drowsy driver clipped the back end of a car on I-215 Wednesday morning, sending it spinning off the road.

The Utah Highway Patrol says the man was driving in one lane and then suddenly veered into another lane near 4300 South.

He squeezed between two cars and then hit the one in front of him. That car started spinning and rolled off the shoulder of the road.

The driver went to the hospital with minor injuries.

The man who caused the crash told troopers he'd just gotten off a graveyard shift and must have fallen asleep.
