Man Suffers Fatal Heart Attack Before Car Crash

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

This past Sunday, a man from Godfrey, Illinois suffered a heart attack before crashing his car. The 61-year-old man was driving a Ford Focus when the accident occurred in Alton, Illinois just after 3:00 pm on Sunday afternoon. The man was driving in the parking lot of the Farm & Home Supply Store at 2600 Homer Adams Parkway when he hit a tree. Emergency personnel responded to the scene of the accident and the 61-year-old man was rushed to Alton Memorial Hospital where he was ultimately pronounced dead just before 4:00 pm. According to the coroner's office, the 61-year-old man had a history of heart disease and had even reported feeling dizzy a day earlier due to the heat. The man's x-ray's reportedly did not reveal any significant trauma and showed only superficial wounds. Although the evidence and circumstances indicate that the man died of natural causes, tests for drugs and alcohol will be conducted because the man was driving.
