MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a South Florida man fell asleep while driving and crashed into a store.

The Miami Herald reports that the crash occurred Tuesday morning at a shopping plaza.

Miami police say the man was driving home after working an overnight shift when his car jumped a curb and slammed into dd's Discounts.

Officials say the store wasn't open yet, so no customers were injured. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

It wasn't immediately clear if the driver would be cited for the crash.
