A wreck Tuesday morning in Union City apparently occurred after the driver experienced some type of medical problem.
April A. Whitehead, 33, of 211 South Ury St., Union City, died in the aftermath of an accident that happened about 7:40 a.m. at High School Drive and Sunswept Drive, according to a Union City Police Department report.
Police said Ms. Whitehead appeared to have “a medical event” which caused her to lose consciousness while driving a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, which ran off the road and into a field.
An autopsy is being conducted.
Ms. Whitehead’s 4-year-old son was a passenger in the vehicle at the time and apparently was not injured.
