A man suffering from a medical emergency crashed into a Fresno home’s garage Friday morning, police say.

Just before 10:30 a.m., Fresno Police officers were dispatched to the area of Ashlan and Cornelia avenues regarding a car that struck a home, according to Lt. Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department.

“The caller told dispatch that the male driver in the car was still stuck in the car and the crashed car was smoking,” he says.

Officers responded accordingly with their lights and sirens activated to the crash scene. They found a 46-year-old man behind the wheel of a 2015 Nissan Sentra that was crashed into the home’s garage, Gomez says.

Officers learned the driver also struck a parked Toyota, causing significant damage, and forcing the Toyota to crash into another home’s garage. 

“The driver suffered from a medical issue which caused him to leave the roadway. Fortunately, no one was injured in these collisions,” Gomez explains.

The driver was checked out by EMS and released to his family at the scene.

The Fresno Fire Department also responded to the scene and ensured the homes were safe for future repairs and to inhabt.
