A driver suffering from an apparent medical emergency drove his car off the road and into a tree this afternoon in Douglas Park.
The driver was attended to by medical personnel and ultimately taken to the hospital. According to police sources, the driver lost control of his car driving northbound on S. George Mason Drive, mere feet from the intersection with Four Mile Run Drive, just before 3:00 p.m.
The road was closed briefly as fire and police personnel responded to the crash, but it has since reopened.
Airbags deployed and the windshield shattered. The car, a Dodge Avenger, is likely totaled, suffering severe front end damage. There’s no word on the severity of the driver’s injuries.
