Tiredness blamed for quarter of fatal road crashes

A quarter of all road accidents are caused by drivers who have fallen asleep at the wheel, according to the AA Charitable Trust.

A survey of 20,000 motorists also found one in eight admitted falling asleep while driving, while 37% - said they had been so tired they were frightened they would drop off behind the wheel.

AA president Edmund King told Sky News: "If you close your eyes just for a couple of seconds, nodding off, you've actually covered the distance of more than a football pitch.

"If you close your eyes for 30 seconds you'll have gone more than half a mile, so it really is the hidden killer out there."
