Alabama driver dies of cardiac arrest in Columbus

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say an Alabama motorist who died in Columbus was caused by cardiac arrest.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan said John L. Johnson of Phenix City was pronounced dead at 5:30 p.m. Friday, after he went into cardiac arrest while driving on J.R. Allen Parkway at Gateway Road.

Bryan said two witnesses said they were stopped at a red light when they saw Johnson's truck start rolling before the vehicle went down an embankment and no brake lights ever came on.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that Columbus police are investigating the wreck. Bryan said that Johnson died of natural causes and the wreck didn't cause his death.
