Driver who jumped overpass had little sleep, several drinks

The driver who jumped an overpass on US-131 says the surveillance video circulating the website is not funny to him.

Chandler Cockerham says its like reliving a nightmare every time he gets on the internet.

Cockerham says he fell asleep behind the wheel and it took just seconds for his car to drift onto a snowy embankment.

He says he had two mixed drinks and a six-pack of beer and slept for four hours before he woke up and got on the road.

Cockerham says he didn't feel intoxicated or tired at all and then everything changed.
