(KMOV.com) — Tuesday, a vehicle crashed into Alton Memorial Hospital.

The car jumped the curb and slammed into the exterior brick wall. 

After the crash, hospital staff found the elderly driver unconcious with his foot still on the gas pedal. 

He was taken inside to be treated. 

It appears the driver may have suffered from a medical condition.

The vehicle hit right outside a patient’s room.

“There was a patient in that room and I think she was a little shaken when she heard a car thump right outside,” said Dave Whaley, a spokesperson with the hospital. “So we were able to move her to another room in there.”

Other than that, the spokesman says service at the hospital was not disrupted.
