LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities have recovered a 19-year-old Tennessee man who crashed into a ravine in Alabama and spent three days trapped in the wreckage before he could crawl free.

Tyler Campbell was spotted Tuesday by a truck driver who saw him lying beside Interstate 65 in Limestone County, Alabama, just south of the Tennessee border.

Authorities had been looking for Campbell since he was reported missing on Saturday. He told officials the accident occurred that day, and said he fell asleep at the wheel.

Campbell was being treated in a hospital for leg and arm injuries.
