DALLAS, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Authorities in Dallas said a sleepy driver found a unique way to go to bed when she fell asleep at a wheel and crashed into a mattress store.

Police said the woman, who was not injured, was driving home from working a 13-hour shift when she fell asleep at the wheel and crashed her pickup truck through the wall of the Sleep Experts store, KTVT-TV, Dallas/Fort Worth, reported Wednesday.

Firefighters said Oncor had to disconnect the building's electricity before the vehicle could be removed from the store.

Police did not release an estimate for the amount of damage to the store.
