CDC: 1 in 24 admit falling asleep at wheel

NEW YORK -

Thousands of American adults report falling asleep at the wheel.

In a survey of 147,000 adults, the Centers for Disease Control reports that about 4 percent admit to falling asleep while driving. And health officials think the number is probably higher. That's because some people don't realize it when they nod off for a second or two.

The study found drowsy driving was more common in men and in people ages 25-34.
