PLACERVILLE, Calif. — Two brothers were injured after one of them fell asleep behind the wheel on Highway 50.
CHP said the driver lost control of his 2007 Toyota around 1:42 p.m. and left the roadway just west of Shingle Springs Drive.
The truck overturned and stopped in the KOA campground.
The driver was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries, however, his brother, the passenger in the car, had his arm severed in the incident, a CHP-Placerville spokesperson said.
CHP identified the driver as Tou Vang, 28, and the passenger as Kong Vang, 26, both of Sacramento.
In a social media post, CHP warned about drowsy driving, comparing it to drunk driving.
"Drowsy driving is dangerous," CHP said on Facebook. "If you find yourself feeling sleepy, pull over to a safe place off the freeway and rest before continuing."
