Police confirm driver fell asleep in Main Street crash
Rockland — The driver of a landscaping truck that careened into a car and a Main Street storefront last week simply fell asleep, according to Rockland police.
Christopher Heald, 28, had been working long hours and fell asleep while driving a truck on Main Street on April 14.
No one was injured. Pedestrians had been on the sidewalk moments earlier when the truck struck a sports utility vehicle owned by Janna Eggen and then into the exterior of the building where restaurant In Good Compay is located.
Rockland Police Sgt. Don Finnegan said that he examined Heald at the scene and there was no issue of anything other than falling asleep.
The truck had damage to its brakes. The SUV was likely a total loss, he said. There was no structural damage to the building.
