Sleep in a tank causes chaos

Sleep in a tank causes chaos

In South Korea a tank has left a trail of destruction after its driver dozed off at the controls.

The vehicle was returning from overnight training exercises when it accelerated and drove off the road, Ananova.com reported.

The tank crashed into two cars and then four trucks, scaring pedestrians away.

The driver, Yeon Lee, was still sleeping when his tank nearly killed a driver in one of the cars it crashed into. He only woke up after the vehicle had careered into a shop front and stopped.

Surprisingly, Lee happened to be the only victim of the accident. He was taken to the hospital with head and chest injuries.
