A man in North Charleston hit a median, crossed over into oncoming traffic, hit a curb then ran smack into a building on Sunday afternoon.

When police arrived on the scene the man, Anthony Washington, told officers that he had blacked out. He'd felt the blackout coming, but said that since he was so close to home he continued to drive anyway. Smart.

Both The Post and Courier and ABC News 4 have the story.
