A Schuylkill County teen fell asleep at the wheel of her car and crashed Friday, Dec. 7, early in the morning.

The car crossed into the westbound lane and onto the north berm. After entering the berm the car impacted with a utility pole with the right front, sheering off the pole.

The car came to rest on its drivers' side facing east.
