An unidentified man in his 50’s that may have been experiencing medical issues drove his 1980’s model Dodge truck into a fence on Wednesday afternoon near the Quest building by Mount and Russell.

Sergeant Scott Pastian with the Missoula Police Department said the incident began when several people called 9-1-1 to report someone driving on the wrong side of the road near Mount and Russell.

“A police officer in the area was waved down by a citizen and the officer tried to stop the vehicle, but it failed to stop,” Pastian said. “There was a low-speed pursuit and the incident ended when the vehicle crashed into the fence over by Quest. The officers are investigating, but we believe it may be medically related. The driver was transported to St. Patrick Hospital for an examination. Nobody else was injured, and the damage was mostly to the vehicle and a fence post.”
