Man dies in car crash in Dublin

Police: Medical emergency could have led to fatal crash on weekend

Dublin police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred near the center of town amid wintry conditions on Saturday afternoon.

A man in his 70s was behind the wheel around 4 p.m. Saturday when his vehicle crashed in the area of Stagecoach Drive and Amador Valley Boulevard, according to Dublin police Capt. Nate Schmidt.

The man, who was found dead inside the vehicle, may have suffered from medical issues right before the crash, which would have been a contributing factor, according to Schmidt.

Officially, the cause of the solo-vehicle crash remains under investigation. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors, Schmidt said. The driver's name has not yet been released.
