Driver suffering medical incident hits parked cars at Walmart

Nobody was injured in the incident that took place Friday morning on Vedder Way

An apparent medical incident resulted in an out-of-control vehicle hitting several cars in the Walmart parking lot on Vedder Way this morning in Abbotsford.

The incident took place at about 11:30 a.m., when an elderly driver who was suffering an apparent medical episode lost control of his vehicle, sending it careening into eight parked cars.

A witness at the scene said pedestrians were forced to jump out of the way, but nobody was hurt.

The vehicle apparently came to a stop after the driver’s wife was able to take the keys out of the ignition.

The driver was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure, but was otherwise OK.

Watch for more.
