Colorado Springs Man Loses Control Of Vehicle, Drives Through Fences

Comments Off

A Colorado Springs man lost control of his pickup truck slamming through three fences before crashing into a garage full of cars.

Police believe the driver suffered a seizure while behind the wheel.

The truck accident happened on Damsel Drive off Stetson Hills Blvd, Sunday morning.

It appears the truck went off Stetson Hills and crashed through a fence – struck a swing set and then a tree.

There were three children in the truck at the time of the accident. No one was seriously injured in the crash, but the driver and his children were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

"His oldest son who is approximately 10 years old tried to reach to the front and grab the brake or steering wheel but was not able to, so this car was just veering off of trees and everything else until it came to rest," Sgt. Taylor with the Colorado Springs Police Department said.

The driver has been cited for careless driving. The investigation is ongoing. #
