An unknown medical condition resulted in an accident Thursday evening in Montgomery County that sent one person to the hospital. The Iowa State Patrol says 25-year old Bryant Hunter, of Stanton, passed out at the wheel of his 1997 Chevy pickup, as the vehicle was traveling east on Highway 34 northeast of Villisca, at around 5:35-p.m., Thursday. The pickup entered the south ditch, came out of the ditch and crossed both lanes of the highway, before vaulting a small waterway in the north ditch. When the truck hit the ditch embankment, its airbags deployed. The vehicle came to rest against the embankment. Hunter was transported by Villisca Rescue to the Montgomery County Memorial Hospital in Red Oak.
