ELDERLY MAN LOSES CONSCIOUSNESS RUNS OFF 290

Washington County EMS crews pulled an ‘elderly white male’ from a late model Honda van during the noon hour Friday, after he apparently lost consciousness and skidded off the eastbound lane of Highway 290 about five miles west of Brenham.

A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper said the man was unconscious for ‘medical reasons’ and not from accident injuries. The man left the roadway and ran into a ditch, damaging the van.

The man was transferred to the College Station Medical Center after he had been taken to the Scott and White Hospital in Brenham.  An EMS crew member could only say the man may have had a seizure or some other medical condition that made him lose consciousness.
