A 26 year old Shepparton man's been charged with drink driving following a near disaster on the Goulburn Valley Highway.

Police say the man fell asleep at the wheel of a vehicle in the middle of the road, near Arcadia at 3:30am on Sunday morning - his foot resting on the brake pedal.

The Shepparton News reports a police officer quickly had to wedge his car between the motorists' and a fuel tanker truck - after the man's foot slipped off the brakes.
