Nick Malloy's Wednesday morning accident happened after he fell asleep while driving, according to Lt. Sean DeFoe of the Bibb County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff's department has completed its incident report on the accident, which happened around 2 a.m. on Interstate 75 near Bass Road.
DeFoe said Malloy told investigators he fell asleep, then woke up as his car left the road and he overcorrected.
The accident report says:
"It appeared the driver was exiting I-75 North at the Bass Rd. exit (Exit 172). It appeared the driver may have driven partially into the grass on the left side of the exit, then the vehicle veered right, then down an embankment, and hit a culvert at the bottom of the embankment. The vehicle appeared to have crossed the culvert, which caused the vehicle to flip over, hit a small tree, then the top of the vehicle appeared to have hit a second tree, at which time the vehicle came to rest on all four wheels, on the opposite side of the culvert. The vehicle appeared to have traveled 336 feet from the first contact with the grassy area to final point of impact."
Malloy, a country singer and son of 13WMAZ anchor Frank Malloy, is recovering at the Medical Center of Central Georgia after multiple injuries.
DeFoe said investigators did not do a blood-alcohol test on him because there were no signs that he was impaired.
