Police say the young driver who went off the road and crashed into a parked trailer Wednesday was suffering from a medical condition.

It happened around 3:00 p.m. at 6250 Ashworth Road in West Des Moines.

The driver apparently went across three lanes of traffic and hit a trailer parked in front of a house. The trailer was pushed into the home, damaging it.

The driver was out of his truck by the time police arrived and he told them he didn’t remember what happened. He was taken to the hospital for testing and no one else was hurt.

Police don’t anticipate any charges in the case.
