A 34-year-old North Hollywood man crashed his sport utility vehicle on the Ventura Freeway near Camarillo Springs Road on Monday after apparently suffering a seizure, authorities said.
Michael Pierce was in fair condition Monday night at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, spokeswoman Kris Carraway-Bowman said. The cause of the seizure was unknown, she said.
According to California Highway Patrol Officer Dave Webb, Pierce was southbound on the freeway about 2:30 p.m. when he crashed his 2000 Ford Explorer into the center divider.
Moments later, 30-year-old Ben Abdallah of Massachusetts parked about 300 feet in front of the wreckage and started walking toward Pierce's vehicle to help him.
