ST. GEORGE -- St. George police are investigating why a semitrailer crashed through a fence and into someone's yard.

No injuries were reported in the crash about 8 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Bluff Street and Snow Canyon Parkway.

Authorities tell The Spectrum that 49-year-old driver Carlos Caceres had stopped at the intersection and closed his eyes, then was jolted awake by the impact.

St. George Police Sgt. Albert Gilman says the driver doesn't know if he fell asleep or if something else happened.

The family living in the home tells KSL the house itself wasn't struck, but the truck did smash through a playhouse.
