NORTH AUGUSTA -- Authorities believe a woman ran into a pole on Georgia Avenue while suffering a seizure, according to Lt. Tim Pearson.
The woman was traveling southbound on the 200 block around noon when she drifted right and struck the pole, causing the vehicle to catch fire.
Emergency responders found her on the grass shoulder on the road when they arrived. Pearson said she had escaped the fire, but appeared “confused” and didn’t know where she was or that an accident had occurred.
The driver was transported to Medical College of Georgia hospital for treatment.
