Hauling a load of red diesel from Dallas to Odessa Sunday morning, a driver dozed off when he got to Martin County and flipped his tanker over. The driver was so sound asleep that he apparently did not know where he was when he woke up and found himself upside down going down the interstate. He travelled about a quarter of a mile upside down while spilling all 7800 gallons of diesel on the interstate.
