An elderly man driving southbound on South Edmonds Friday afternoon is believed to have suffered a heart attack causing him to lose control of his car. The car drifted to the right – left the pavement – and smashed in to a concrete driveway culvert. The impact was very violent and demolished half the car. Witnesses told a sheriff’s deputy that the man was trapped in the wreckage and was not breathing.
Arriving Carson City Fire-Paramedics worked hard to get him out of the wreckage…but it took a while due to the caved-in interior of the two front seats.
Paramedics loaded the victim inside an ambulance which did not leave the scene right away. The deceased driver’s name was not immediately released as per protocol – that his family should be informed first.
