Yikes, best wishes for a speedy recovery for this man. I'm glad no one else was injured.

That could have been any one of us.

This happened right in front of our office. The car just narrowly missed
hitting a light pole by inches, took out our sign, then ran into the tree.

Hope the guy recovers fully. It was a bad accident, but could have gone
a lot worse if the car would have taken another path (ex: run into the building).

The crash was horrible. MV is right - it could have been worse had the car hit a pedestrian, or another car head on, or flipped over, or plowed into a building.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda. No one else got injured except for this guy.
No need to go through a 'what if' scenario.
I hope the guy survives and isn't incapacitated going forward.

Hey Sparty,

Read the story - the driver had a seizure. What was his lesson - don't get sick? Your callous comment is disgusting.
