GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A man crashed his truck into a Glendale canal Sunday morning after apparently falling asleep at the wheel.

Jesse Navarrett said he was driving his father's truck north on 99th Avenue, when he veered off the road and landed in a canal near Bethany Home Road. He was on his way home.

"I just fell asleep at the wheel," he said. "I've been working a lot of hours lately."

Navarrett was soaked up to his waist in water after exiting the truck but was not injured.

Police responded, but Navarrett said he was not cited.
