A gray Ford Excursion was traveling east in the 1500 block of Westheimer Road when the driver lost consciousness, swerved into the right curb and struck a utility pole. The vehicle then swerved into the westbound lanes and struck a Volvo and a white Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee, driven by Mr. Hoyt, came to a stop on the side of a house at 1508 Westheimer. The impact caused the Cherokee to spin around and strike a Honda CRV parked in a driveway at 1508 Westheimer. The Cherokee then rolled south across Westheimer and came to a stop next to a building at 1509 Westheimer.

The case will be presented to the Harris County District Attorney’s office for possible charges.
