The driver of an 18-wheeler suffered a seizure Saturday morning, losing control and crashing into a tire store, a Baton Rouge Police Department spokesman said.

Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said the driver was stricken about 8:20 a.m. and hit the Tire Kingdom store at 8770 Airline Highway.

Only the driver was taken to a hospital, McKneely said, and that was because of the seizure.

There were no other reported injuries, McKneely said.

McKneely did not know the name of the driver or his company.

The driver was not ticketed, he said.
