There were no other occupants in the vehicle, and no other vehicles, pedestrians or shoppers are believed to have been involved in the collision, Carey said.

“We have heard reports of a medical emergency,” she added. “[But] we have not been able to definitively confirm what happened. There was no criminal activity of any kind, so it was mostly fire assistance.

Although the driver’s identity has not been made public, Carey said the man was in his 30s, but no specific age was given. His condition on Monday afternoon was not known.
