Paris Police Department officers and emergency personnel responded to a single-car accident on Friday afternoon just after 1 p.m., where a driver had allegedly fallen asleep at the wheel after getting off work from a local factory, according to a witness at the scene.

The accident happened close to the intersection of Lamar Avenue and 12th Street, resulting in much of the eastbound traffic having to detour around the accident as the tow truck flipped the car back over to tow it away.

The driver was ‘okay’, according to a police officer at the scene, although was likely shaken up from the accident.
