White Oak police said the driver of a Cadillac Escalade told officers he was asleep at the wheel on Friday when his vehicle sheared a pole and snapped a tree along the 200 block of Cool Springs Road.

The accident occurred at 4:48 p.m.

Police said the driver reported he was on his way home from work when he fell asleep and woke up with a tree on his SUV.

The tree was removed, showing the Escalade had moderate front end damage.

It came to a stop in a yard and partially on a driveway. No homes were damaged.

Duquesne Light crews fixed power lines and replaced the pole. Service was not disrupted and no one was injured.

Police said the incident was deemed an accident and no charges are expected to be filed against the driver.
