HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A 19-year-old man who was reported missing in Alabama has been found alive, officials said.

Tyler Campbell, who was reported missing Saturday night, was found about 2 p.m. Tuesday off Interstate 65 North in Tennessee, WHNT-TV, Huntsville, Ala., reported.

Campbell apparently fell asleep at the wheel while driving home from a church event and drove his truck off the road into a ravine. He suffered a broken leg and an injured shoulder.

The teenager was able to climb out of the ravine Tuesday. He crawled under a guard rail and flagged down a passing driver, who dialed 911.
