An 84-year-old Kennewick man was listed in critical condition Saturday evening, hours after crashing the vehicle he was driving.
Charles Loosvelt suffered an apparent heart attack just before 11 a.m. Saturday while driving south on Olympia Street near 15th Avenue in Kennewick, according to a Kennewick Police news release. Witnesses reported seeing Loosvelt cross into the northbound lane and hitting a curb before drifting back into the southbound lane, police said.
Loosvelt then struck a fence along the west side of the street, and his vehicle rolled over, police said.
Loosvelt was found unconscious and not breathing, with people taking him out of the vehicle, when officers arrived on the scene, police said. An officer and a citizen performed CPR on him and medics were able to resuscitate him after the fire department arrived.
