SAN ANTONIO - The driver of an 18-wheeler told officers he briefly fell asleep behind the wheel just before crashing and tipping over the trailer he was hauling along I-10 on Monday morning.

The accident happened on I-10 eastbound near US Hwy. 87, outside of Boerne.

Investigators believe the driver over-corrected after going off the roadway, causing the trailer to tip over. The driver was not hurt; no other vehicles were involved.

The debris was cleared by 7 a.m.
