Five people were taken to the hospital following an accident on I-69 near Dawson Springs on Sunday morning.

Kentucky State Police say that the driver, 18-year-old X'Zavier Alley, was headed southbound on I-69 when it appears that he fell asleep.

Troopers say the minivan drifted and went into the median;  Alley overcorrected and lost control.

The minivan hit a dirt embankment and turned over several times.

Alley and his passengers were taken to Baptist Health Madisonville for treatment.  They included a six-and-a-half month old, a two year old, a 17-year old and a 21-year old.

Troopers say the adults were all wearing seat belts, and the toddler and infant were in child safety seats.
