BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

Police said a driver who was killed in a car accident in Belleville Saturday night may have suffered a major medical event before crashing.

Police said Harold Sanders, 56, of Belleville was driving south on Frank Scott Parkway around 10:20 p.m. when he lost control of his 2008 Toyota Camry, crossed Illinois Route 158 and struck a stop sign at Old Oak Lane.

The car then continued up a driveway hitting a utility pole and then hit a large dumpster. The dumpster was pushed back into another vehicle. That car ended up in a house, police said. Nobody was home at the time.

Sanders was the only person inside the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
