Worth County-- An Alabama man is facing charges after dozing behind the wheel.

It happened after ten p.m. Saturday night.  Investigators say Marion Townes was traveling east on 520 in Worth County when he dozed off and crossed the center line. His black Chevrolet pickup struck a semi-truck head on as it was traveling west towards Albany. A Ford Expedition then hit Townes' truck after it hit the tractor trailer. Two passengers in that vehicle, a woman and a 16-year-old were injured and taken to Phoebe in Worth County.

Townes was taken to Phoebe in Albany. Investigators say injuries weren't life-threatening. Townes is currently being charged with driving on the wrong side of the road. The wreck is still under investigation.
