High Point, NC -- A tractor-trailer was involved in an accident Tuesday morning on I-85 South in Guilford County.

Shawn Cheek, 28-years-old from Asheboro, was driving a tractor-trailer for Triple JRC Logistics out of Siler City. He told troopers he fell asleep before driving off the road - to the left - and hitting the guard rail.

Only one lane was open while crews worked to clear the accident.

Cheek was charged with Careless and Reckless Driving. No injuries were reported.
