Flyers forward Danny Briere escaped serious injury this morning when his SUV collided with a tractor-trailer near Binghamton, New York, police said.
Briere and his 9-year-old son Cameron were headed north on I-81 about 12:30 a.m. just north of the Pennsylvania state line.
Briere, driving a 2010 Land Rover, was passing a tractor-trailer when he became drowsy and drifted into the right-hand lane and sideswiped the big rig, said Sgt. Steven Barlow, spokesman for the New York State Police.
The truck swerved. Briere's Land Rover crashed into a guardrail. The big rig jackknifed and tipped on its side blocking all northbound traffic for about five hours.
Briere and his son received minor injuries. The star center was treated at a Binghamton hospital for an unspecified arm injury. Cameron Briere complained of neck pain. The driver of the truck was not injured.
