A young boy is dead after his father fell asleep at the wheel early Thursday morning in Woodland.
The boy was sleeping in the back of the car and was only wearing a lap belt. When the man fell asleep, the car went off I-5 near County Road 118 and rolled down an embankment into a corn field.
The accident was near the Sacramento River. The boy flew out of the car.
The driver and one other passenger in the car received only mild injuries and were transported to Woodland Memorial Hospital.
An officer on the scene said the man was driving straight from Washington state.
