An adult male driver estimated to be about 40 suffered a medical emergency Jan. 17, leading to a crash on Zion Drive, said Master Police Officer J.T. Frey of the .
Eyewitnesses said an SUV went airborne across Zion Drive near Kipp Court at about 5 p.m., broke through a split rail fence, and wedged between two trees.
"At the time of the wreck there was a very huge explosion, and a lot of smoke coming from the front of the SUV, but there did not appear to be a fire," said one eyewitness.
The medical emergency made the driver unconscious, according to Officer Frey. "It was fortunate he was wearing a seatbelt, and that no other vehicles or persons were involved or injured," said Frey.
The driver was transported to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Frey said the explosion resulted when the vehicle hit a power box and a transformer blew, causing a power outage in the neighborhood.
Zion Drive was closed for about an hour as rescue workers extricated the driver.
