A SLEEPY teenager escaped without injury when his car hit the central barrier on the A64 dual carriageway in North Yorkshire last night.

Police tweeted that the driver 'informed us he was a bit sleepy when he hit the central barrier at Whitwell on the Hill.'

An officer continued: "Expensive lesson learned for a 19-year-old, we think. Luckily no one hurt. Please take a break if your tired."
