HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS — Deputies say a driver’s medical issue may have caused him to accelerate and crash into two houses in northwest Harris County.

The impact caused the garage to collapse on the first home hit by the SUV in the 19300 block of Little Pine Lane near Mason Road.

“It sounded like thunder,” said Thelma Cipriano, who lives nearby.

The driver was taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in serious condition. Nobody inside either home was hurt.

“The rumors were the guy had a seizure,” said neighbor Kourtland Thomas.

Two little girls were playing in the driveway moments before the SUV came barreling through. They went inside seconds before the crash.
