Coroner called to scene of crash in Fleetwood
Vehicle hit tree in front yard of home on South Richmond Street
A Berks County man died Friday after his pickup truck crashed head-on into a tree, officials said.
The truck went up onto a sidewalk and crashed into the tree in the front yard of a home in the 300 block of South Richmond Street in Fleetwood around 10:15 a.m.
Hector Perez, 61, of Oley Township, was pulled from the wreckage, but he died in the ambulance a short time later, said officials, adding that his death appears to be the result of a medical condition unrelated to the accident.
Perez's passenger told investigators he noticed the driver passing out as the truck began veering out of control, police said.
The passenger was not injured.
