Tired driver endangers lives for miles before he's stopped near Paw Paw

by

ANTWERP TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo County Dispatch received fifteen 9-1-1 calls about a vehicle weaving erratically on I-94 near Galesburg headed west, and then Van Buren County started getting the same kind of calls.

What made this one different was that the complaints were about a truck driver behind the wheel of a Semi-tractor trailer rig.

Van Buren County dispatched deputies to check it out and almost immediately upon spotting the semi, began witnesses what all those drivers were complaining about.

They pulled the driver over and the trucker confessed to being extremely tired but having deadlines to meet.

A motorist submitted 4-minutes of video of the trucker weaving from lane to lane and nearly hitting another vehicle.

The Driver was taken into custody, and charged with reckless driving.The truck was removed from the roadway. The driver missed this deadline.
