A Sitka man was hospitalized over the weekend after his car ran into a tree on the seaward side of Halibut Point Road.
Sitka police Lt. Barry Allen says the 62-year-old man was inbound on near Peterson Street around 4:30 p.m. Saturday, when he suffered some sort of medical event.
Allen said it caused the man to lose control of his black Ford Explorer, taking out a road sign and striking a tree. The man was transported to the hospital by ambulance. His condition could not immediately be confirmed by authorities.
Traffic was stopped along Halibut Point Road for about a half hour, although authorities spent more time on the scene. Allen said the vehicle was totaled.
