A Pavilion resident was uninjured early this morning after falling asleep and crashing his car on Route 246 in the Town of Covington.
Christopher Barbis, 26, was, however, cited by the Wyoming County Sheriff's Office for alleged failure to keep right.
Barbis was southbound on Route 237 at 2:23 a.m. when he reportedly fell asleep at the wheel.
His car had substantial front-end damage after striking a National Grid utility pole.
Pavilion Fire Department responded to the scene.
No other vehicles were involved.
