Photo Submitted 
A Clinton, Missouri man fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his pickup truck into a statue of a horse in Sisters, Oregon on Friday morning, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Shortly after 5 a.m., 18-year-old Skylar Doss of Clinton, Missouri, hit the statue at East Cascade Avenue and South Larch Street in Sisters Oregon. 


Mr. Doss, who was alone in the 2005 Ford Ranger, told officers that he had fallen asleep. Both of the airbags in Doss’ truck deployed, and he was uninjured, according to the press release.

The sheriff’s office determined that Doss was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and believes that he did, in fact, fall asleep.
