Deputies say they determined Smith was traveling east when he fell asleep. The car traveled across the oncoming lane and ran off the road, hitting a tree.

Authorities say they discovered Smith had been driving while his registration was suspended due to an insurance lapse.

Smith is charged with operating with a suspended registration, moving from a lane unsafely and failure to keep right.

The teen’s condition was not available.
