WEST PENN TWP., Pa. -

They said at some point the man fell asleep, possibly leaning against the driver.

She then drove off the road and into a wooded area where the vehicle hit some trees, and rolled down a mountain.

The driver and her passenger were taken to local hospitals.

There's no word on their conditions.
