SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Navy sailor is recovering from minor injuries after falling asleep at the wheel and crashing his car into a shallow canyon. 

The accident happened early Tuesday morning just north of the Lawrence Welk Resort.

Authorities say the driver was on his way home from visiting his wife in the hospital and was sleep deprived.

He fell asleep as he was exiting the I-15 and his car went airborne over Highway 395 and landed in brush.
