Police: Driver suffered medical episode before crashing into house | News
ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- The Clay County Sheriff's Office is investigating a driver crashing a vehicle into a house in the 1500 block of Ibis Drive on Wednesday afternoon.
The adult female driver, identified as Amanda Jammes, has been transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, according to Mary Justino with CCSO. The two children who were in the car are uninjured.
Clay County Fire Rescue responded to the incident, reported as a vehicle in a residential structure fire, around 3:19 p.m., according to a release from David Motes, Deputy Fire Chief. The vehicle went completely into the home after striking a fence.
Gary Davis was inside the home at the time of the crash, but was not injured. The home's occupants were not able to return to the home due to the damage, Motes said.
Davis' Boston Terrier ran off when the crash happened, and he's hoping she will be found soon.
A crash reported released by the Clay County Sheriff's Office Thursday said the crash happened when Jammes suffered a medical emergency. Jammes accelerated when the episode began, causing her to lose control of her vehicle. The report said Jammes was not injured as a result of the crash but was in and out of consciousness. Rescue personnel transported her to Orange Park Medical Center as a precaution.
