A driver who witnesses say appeared to be asleep at the wheel is now being investigated for impaired driving.
Comox Valley RCMP Const. Monika Terragni says that just after 2:00pm, police received several reports of an erratic driver downtown Courtenay.
Witnesses reported that the driver was nodding off, and his vehicle had hit a meridian before stopping at 5th Street and Fitzgerald Avenue, where officers caught up with him.
The driver was taken into police custody and an impaired driving investigation is currently underway.
