Driver crashes lorry into garden fence after suffering 'medical episode'

A driver crashed his lorry into a garden fence following a suspected medical episode at the wheel. Police were called to Swinemoor Lane in Beverley[1] after a large truck mounted the pavement and careered into the back garden of a property shortly before midday. The vehicle, which was carrying a load, came to a halt in the busy residential street near Wickes with paramedics also attending the scene of the accident.

Police have now revealed that the driver lost control of his vehicle after suffering a potential medical episode.

A spokesman for Humberside Police[2] said: “Officers have attended a road traffic collision today where a lorry collided into a fence and a lamp post. “It happened just before midday on Swinemoor Lane in Beverley. It’s thought the driver could have suffered a medical episode but is now fully awake and has not needed hospital treatment.
