Police believe the driver fell asleep causing her to drive off the road.

Both the driver and a passenger were transported to a BA hospital.

There is no word on their conditions, but police don't believe they were seriously injured.

The wreckage was quickly cleaned off the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
