Authorities say a driver who fell asleep behind the wheel ended up crashing into a train in southwest Houston. The crash happened just off the Southwest Freeway near Drexel around 1am. Investigators say the driver most likely fell asleep while waiting for the train to pass.

Police believe her foot slipped off the brake, causing her SUV to inch forward and eventually hit the train. The woman was not hurt.
