A good mattress makes you feel like you are sleeping on air. A mattress that is literally in the air doesn't have that same appeal.

Burleigh County Sheriff Deputy Justin Hoag confirmed this obvious assumption Wednesday night when he was driving along Main Avenue in Bismarck.

The Associated Press reports that an oncoming trailer carrying mattresses had one come loose and strike the windshield of Hoag's vehicle.

The mattress shattered glass on the car which then struck Hoag.

Hoag was treated at a hospital and is recovering well.

The truck driver was cited for carrying an unsecured load.
