HELENA - A Helena man was taken to the hospital on Monday afternoon after apparently falling asleep at the wheel and driving his car into the Burger King drive-thru on North Sanders Street.
Police are still trying to figure out how the man made it across three lanes of traffic headed west after reportedly attempting to turn left at the traffic light headed north.
The accident happened shortly after 4 p.m.
A man, who was attempting to order a meal in the drive-thru, said he saw the car coming very quickly toward him, and he attempted to put his truck into reverse, but didn't make it before being struck.
The car jumped the curb and drove into the truck's passenger side bumper.
The man driving the car was complaining of head and facial injuries.
The accident is still being investigated.
