Vehicle crashes into building

An Augusta man crashed into a Barton Chapel Road business after suffering a medical issue, according to Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay.

 The man was traveling down Barton Chapel Road around 3:50 p.m. when he blacked out, hit several street signs, crossed Massoit Drive and stuck the side of  S&S Food Store at 2657 Barton Chapel Road.

 The driver was the only person injured in the crash. He was transported to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with minor injuries after a wrecker retrieved his ‘90s model Crown Victoria from the building, Gay said.

 No one was inside the building at the time of the incident. The vehicle crashed into a Chinese restaurant attached to the side of the convenience store. The restaurant was closed for remodeling at the time.
