“The driver apparently suffered a medical issue causing her to lose control of the vehicle that took out a stop sign before crashing into the garage of the home,” said Dothan Police Traffic Investigator Sgt. Dennis Sallas.

The force of the crash pushed a freezer inside the garage into a Cadillac parked inside. It sustained minimal damage. Sallas said two people home at the time but were not injured.

The driver of the car appeared alert when she was placed in an ambulance and taken for medical observation, Sallas said. The woman was not publicly identified but police say she lived in near the site of the crash.
