Seizure May Have Caused Pickup Truck Accident

A seizure may have caused an accident this morning in Onslow County.

State troopers say Lewis Sammons told witnesses he started having seizures while driving down Belgrade-Swansboro Road around 7:20 a.m.

His pickup truck went in between several mailboxes, hit a ditch and then traveled another 600 feet. Trooper D.C. Martin says the pickup then struck a tree, causing the vehicle to spin backwards.

The 30-year-old Sammons was airlifted to an area hospital. Trooper Martin says speed was likely a factor and that charges will probably be filed because of the accident.
