Both police and EMS arrived on scene and found the driver who was reportedly having a medical episode.


Police say witnesses told them they were able to bring the car to a rest on the sidewalk because it was moving through the intersection at such a slow pace.


The vehicle didn’t hit anything or anyone and the driver was transported to the hospital.
