    The slumber of a Calvert County deputy was abruptly interrupted when his patrol car hit a tree, authorities said.

    Christopher Waldron was driving a marked Sheriff's patrol car on Mystic Lane in Lusby when the accident happened.  A preliminary investigation determined that the deputy had been fatigued when his vehicle left the road and collided with the tree.

    The accident took place at 6 a.m. on Wednesday.  No other vehicles were involved.
