Driver Injures Five after Falling Unconscious at the Wheel
People with medical conditions are sometimes forbidden to drive depending on what the problem is, but sometimes a medical condition can manifest unexpectedly while driving. Situations like these can put many people into danger and could open up the driver to liability depending on what happened.Five people were injured in an accident on Biscayne Boulevard when the driver had a medical problem manifest. He lost consciousness at the wheel, slammed into a traffic light, hit the curb, and landed on its side at the Port of Miami sign. The five people in the vehicle were trapped.
