Absolutely. I remember i got a night run i slept as much as i could in the day. I got on the road and i remember my head nodding on the 287 in New Jersey. The study is right on one thing and you pretty muched summed it up.
Picture is deceiving. There's a left curve that starts right before the overpass. If you don't turn the wheel, you'll end up just about exactly where he did. Looks a lot like the driver fell asleep or was doing something else that made him go straight instead of turning.
Well, I drive with empathy for my fellow earthlings, or am working on it safety wise, although it requires a morbid sense of humor (I mean really is driving empathetic to the ecosystem that life depends on, no it isn't harmless irregardless of how sincere you are about it, and in the grand scheme of things it's about as tragic that anyone doesn't go out trying to live a slower to most peaceful existense. So if you want to go there, with utmost empathy for my fellow man, I'd say at least they didn't plow into an Amish buggy, or a Jain temple).
