According to the warrant, Oluwaseyi Agboola fell asleep behind the wheel of his 2010 Infiniti G37, with a New York license plate Thursday as he traveled in the southbound lane, and began to veer into the northbound lane.
That is when the driver of a 2005 Ford Super Duty truck had to steer off the road and strike a sign to avoid a collision, the warrant stated.
Police say when Agboola awoke, he swerved out of the wrong lane, striking a 2003 Honda Accord, which caused the Honda to go air bound and strike another vehicle, a 2005 Mercury Mariner.
The driver of the Honda suffered a fractured right femur, according to the warrant.
When the police examined Agboola’s car, they found next to the driver’s seat a burned “marijuana cigarette with a small amount of blood on it,” according to the warrant.
Agboola was arrested at Kennestone Hospital and charged with a felony count for serious injury by a vehicle, and other misdemeanor charges for failure to maintain a lane, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and driving under the influence.
He was released the next day on a $15,000 bond.
