 >>> to be crashed out = to be asleep

This expression may have been common in the 1960s, but it's not common now.  And where do you crash?  You crash at someone's pad (house, home).  "Pad" was once slang for mattress.

 

Actually, it is still quite common among people under 40. I hear it all the time.

examples:
Don't wait up for me, I'm gonna crash on the couch here at work.

You mind if I crash at your house tonight?
They were so tired after the trip that they crashed as soon as they got here.

Hey man, don't drink and drive! You can crash here tonight.
