Driver survives crash on I-75

A man is thankful he survived a crash early Wednesday that sent his vehicle down a steep embankment.

The driver tells 27 NEWSFIRST he dozed off in the northbound lanes of I-75 near the Athens-Boonesboro exit in Lexington.

He then swerved, ending up in a tree near a creek.

The driver hurt his nose and mouth, but says his seatbelt saved him from more serious injuries.

The crash has been cleaned up.
