Driver in serious condition following medical event

The driver of a car which crashed into a parked car in South Dunedin this afternoon has been taken to hospital in a serious condition.

A police spokeswoman said they were notified of the crash in a Hillside Rd car park at 1.30pm.

No-one was in one of the cars which appeared to be parked.

It was believed the driver of the other car suffered a medical incident and St John were also attending, she said.
