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.

I'm sure the heat didn't help

I'm sure the heat didn't help matters. Going from that heat, even into air conditioning and back out, can be hard on people, especially children and elderly or those with health issues. Try to avoid going from one extreme to the other too quickly.
