GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP — Police think a medical condition caused a 57-year-old parts delivery driver to crash a pickup through an auto repair shop, hitting four or five cars inside and causing workers to flee before the revving truck smashed through an east wall.

The man was taken to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital for treatment, but he was conscious in the ambulance with no apparent physical injuries.

The driver had just arrived at C.A.R.S. Auto Repair, 6742 18th Ave. near Chicago Drive, when he apparently passed out and his foot hit the accelerator. Employees inside the shop heard the roaring vehicle and ran to safety as the truck came through a service door.

When the truck came through the shop, it hit four to five vehicles, some on jacks, before going through an east wall and stopping after hitting a fence outside. No one in the shop was injured.
