AN ELDERLY man drove his car into a bush in a Braunton car park last night after suffering a medical episode.
An ambulance was called to Tesco car park in Velator Way at 8.45pm after reports that a man had blacked out.
When police arrived, they found the grey Ford Fusion stuck in a hedge with the man still trapped inside.
A fire crew was then called to the scene to assist paramedics with the casualty and make the vehicle safe.
The elderly man was taken to North Devon District Hospital following the incident.
An elderly woman, thought to be the man’s wife, was uninjured in the incident.
