ROCHESTER, Minn. – One man is sent to the hospital after having a medical emergency while driving.

Authorities on scene tell KIMT it happened while the man was driving through the light near 55th Street NW.

He hit the gas pedal and his son, who was in the car with him, pulled the wheel. This caused the car to go through the fence along the Highway 52 North entrance ramp towards Holiday Gas Station, and hit four parked cars in the parking lot.

The driver was the only one transported to receive medical attention.
