Trucker falls asleep, flips rig on turnpike

An eastbound tractor trailer went off the Ohio Turnpike near the I-280 interchange in Lake Township yesterday, struck a guardrail, overturned, and ended up in a ditch after the driver fell asleep, authorities said.

Traffic was not affected and there were no injuries from the crash shortly before 6 a.m., Ohio Highway Patrol troopers said.

The driver, Ruslan Pankiv, 26, of Palatine, Ill., was cited for failure to control.
