MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – Troopers said late Wednesday the driver who smashed his truck through the wall of a post office may have suffered from some kind of medical condition.

It was around 7:30 p.m. when rescuers were called to FM 1486 and Highway 105 in Montgomery County. They found a blue Chevrolet pickup truck inside a U.S. Post Office.

Witnesses told troopers the driver was heading west on 105 when he left the roadway and went through a grassy median and parking lot before hitting the post office.

The driver, identified as William Joachim Bailey, 36, was sent to a hospital in College Station in stable condition, troopers said.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident, but the post office suffered extensive damage. The impact took out a wall, electrical lines, and water pipes.

According to DPS Trooper Campbell, investigators spoke with the driver. He said it appeared a medical condition was the cause of the incident.

The damage was boarded up overnight, and the post office planned on opening for business on Thursday.
