One person was hospitalized in Cedar Rapids, Iowa yesterday when a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze left the road and crashed into a manufactured home.
According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, public safety spokesman Greg Buelow said that first responders were called to the Grand View Village manufactured home community for a motor vehicle crash with injuries.
The motorist, a 66-year-old man, was driving in the community when he left the road, went through a field and then was launched into the air, landing in the back of a manufactured home.
Authorities say they believe the man suffered a medical emergency that caused him to pass out. The driver was taken to a hospital, but did not suffer serious injuries.
A woman was in the home at the time the vehicle hit the residence, but she was on the other side of the home and was not injured.
