UPDATED: Truck crashes into building at Eastgate

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Eyewitnesses say a crash at Eastgate Mall may have been the result of a medical emergency.

Witnesses say it appeared 77-year-old Robert Conrad passed out just before the crash.

He hit a couple of vehicles in the parking lot, before slamming into the side of the building.

A church has set up in that portion of Eastgate and the driver went straight into the pastor's office.

 "We're a new church here and we've still been working on the place and my office was not totally set up, so thank the Lord I wasn't in my office and no one else was here and no one was hurt in the parking lot," says Dr. Korbet Slope, Pastor of The Cross Culture.

Conrad was not charged, but was found at fault for the accident and the damages to the property.
