A driver says restless leg syndrome caused him to smash his pick-up truck into a tree. Last night, the man was travelling on the beltway in northeast Harris County. He told investigators his legs went numb as he went around a curve. His pick-up truck went off the roadway and into a tree.

"He pulled himself out of the vehicle, after the vehicle caught fire," said Deputy Paul Begley with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "It was later determined has some form of leg disease. He says his legs went numb on him which caused the accident."

He was taken to a hospital by Life Flight in serious, but stable condition.
