Late last week, a Mesa car accident occurred involving a driver whom onlookers say may have suffered from a medical condition causing him to lose control over his vehicle.
The driver, who was in his fifties, crashed his SUV into two cars on one side of the road, before crashing it again into a home on the other side of the street while going reverse. The car crash happened in the Guadalupe and Loop 101 area causing major damage.
Witnesses say that the driver seemed dazed and confused and is suspected to have suffered from a heart attack or a seizure at the time of the accident.
No one was reportedly hurt except for the driver who was immediately transported to a local hospital for treatment.
While heart disease continues to be the top cause of death in Americans, it is quite rare to hear reports of people having a heart attack while driving and resulting in a car crash.
Though, driver error and other factors remain to be major causes of car crashes all over the world.
Distracted driving (cell phone use, rubbernecking, listening to music, talking to someone) and impaired driving (alcohol and drug use) are two of the most common causes of car accidents in general.
