A car slammed into the Salvation Army building on Columbus Avenue early Friday morning after the driver experienced a medical problem, police said.

Judy Matthews, 65, was taken by ambulance to Firelands Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Police said Matthews was driving a Dodge Intrepid west on Woodlawn Avenue when at about 12:15 a.m. the vehicle ran the stop sign at Columbus Avenue. The car crossed Columbus Avenue and then tore through a brick wall in front of the Salvation Army building. The vehicle traveled a few feet more before slamming into the side of the building and coming to rest.

Police said Matthews lives on Woodlawn Avenue, and she may have been experiencing low blood-sugar levels immediately before the crash.

Witnesses said Matthews was conscious after the wreck, but she seemed disoriented.



Low Blood sugar could be dangerous... Hope all is well with Ms. Matthews.
