A driver fell asleep at the wheel coming off the Garden State Parkway in Washington Township and slammed his work van into a utility pole before dawn Sunday, authorities said.

The 31-year-old Englewood driver was uninjured after shattering the pole on Washington Avenue coming off Exit 168 at 4:30 a.m., Officer Heather Castronova said.

"He said he fell asleep and went straight across the road instead of making a right or left," she said.
